BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The 18th named storm of the season is likely to form today or tomorrow east of Florida, according to the National Hurricane Center.

What will start as a tropical depression may grow into Tropical Storm Sam.

The system is marked by the red X and oval above. An oval represents where a system may form and not necessarily a direction of travel. It’s unclear if the system will eventually turn like Rose and Peter, or potentially remain on a path that could be of concern to South Florida.

The following is the early morning outlook from the National Hurricane Center. We note that Peter and Rose remain in various stages of dissipation — the outlook focuses on the new system.

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Depression Peter, located a couple of hundred miles north-northeast 
of Puerto Rico, and on recently downgraded Tropical Depression 
Rose, located about 1000 miles west-northwest of the Cabo Verde 
Islands. 

1. Showers and thunderstorms are becoming better organized in 
association with a tropical wave located several hundred miles 
southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.  However, satellite wind data 
indicate that the system still lacks a well-defined center. 
Environmental conditions are expected to remain conducive for 
additional development, and a tropical depression is likely to form 
in a day or two while the system moves westward at 10 to 15 mph 
across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic Ocean.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

2. A gale-force, non-tropical low pressure system, the remnants of 
Odette, is located about 500 miles west of the westernmost Azores. 
This low could acquire some subtropical characteristics over 
marginally warm waters during the next few days while it makes a 
counter-clockwise loop over the north-central Atlantic Ocean. 
However, by the weekend, this system is expected to move into an 
environment of strong upper-level winds.  Additional information on 
this system, including gale warnings, can be found in High Seas 
Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.
