BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Atlantic Hurricane Season starts on June 1st, but already the National Hurricane Center says a disturbance expected to for form in the far Gulf is worth watching. The disturbance will be the remains of Hurricane Agatha which is in the Pacific. For new Florida residents, Pacific storms use different names than Atlantic storms.

The National Hurricane Center issued this advisory at 8 a.m. Sunday:

“For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:Southwest Gulf of Mexico and Northwest Caribbean Sea:

A broad area of low pressure is forecast to form over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico or northwestern Caribbean Sea by the middle of the week. Some gradual development is possible thereafter while the system drifts generally eastward or northeastward.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.”

We stress that there is no need to panic, but this system should serve as a reminder that it’s never too soon to prepare your hurricane plan. Emergency planners remain concerned that the huge numbers of people moving to South Florida from non-hurricane prone locations means they will not be prepared should a storm actually threaten the region.

For now, this is merely a system to watch. The first named storm of the Atlantic Hurricane Season will be ”Alex.”
