BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center Monday morning said that what is currently Hurricane Agatha in the Pacific is increasingly looking like a system that Florida and Gulf coast states need to keep an eye on.

While there is absolutely nothing to panic over right now, the system has a 40 percent chance of developing — according to the National Hurricane Center. Where it goes once it crosses Mexico into the Gulf is unclear. We remind our readers that that the orange, shaded area on the map shows where a system may form — not a direction of travel

From the NHC at 8 a.m. Memorial Day:

“Near the Yucatan Peninsula: A large and complex area of low pressure is expected to develop
across Central America, the Yucatan Peninsula, and the southwest Gulf of Mexico in a few days, partially related to the remnants of Hurricane Agatha from the eastern Pacific. Some gradual development
is possible within this system in the far southwest Gulf of Mexico around mid-week or in the northwest Caribbean by the latter part of this week as it drifts eastward or northeastward. Regardless of
development, locally heavy rains will be possible across southern Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula, Guatemala, and Belize through the week.

Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.

Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent.”

If the system becomes a tropical storm, the first name for the Atlantic Hurricane Season is “Alex.”
