FLORIDA: Hurricane Center Says System Unlikely To Become Problem

Florida hurricane News weather
National Hurricane Center outlook for early October 13, 2021.


BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The system southeast of Florida is unlikely to amount to much of anything, according to forecasters at the National Hurricane Center.

The latest guidance, as of early Wednesday morning, is that the system will curve away from Florida — and may very well never reach storm status.

The yellow X above is the only wave or system being watched by the National Hurricane Center in the Atlantic as of early Wednesday, although the Atlantic Hurricane Season does continue until the end of November.

Late October storms are not unprecedented.

Here is the early morning outlook from the National Hurricane Center:

Disorganized showers and thunderstorms over Hispaniola, the Turks 
and Caicos, and the southeastern Bahamas continue in association 
with a surface trough of low pressure.  Development of this system, 
if any, is expected to be slow to occur during the next couple of 
days due to inhibiting environmental conditions.  The disturbance 
is forecast to drift northward through tonight, then accelerate 
eastward as a broad area of low pressure on Thursday.  Toward the 
end of the week, further development is not anticipated as the 
system is interacts with a frontal system.   Regardless, locally 
heavy rainfall is possible over portions of Hispaniola, the Turks 
and Caicos, and the southeastern Bahamas during the next day or two.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.
