BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — There is nothing to worry about tonight but it is time to pay attention to the National Hurricane Center’s tracking map. The system that was Hurricane Agatha in the Pacific is likely to become Tropical Storm Alex over the next few days. The area of development touches Florida.

While the red oval above looks ominous, we remind you that it is an area where a system may form, not necessarily a direction of travel. There is no cone until a system becomes a tropical depression. That has not yet happened.

This is the late afternoon update from the National Hurricane Center. Near the Yucatan Peninsula and Southeastern Gulf of Mexico: A large and complex area of low pressure is expected to develop near
the Yucatan Peninsula and the northwestern Caribbean Sea in a couple of days, partially related to the remnants of Agatha from the eastern Pacific. Despite strong upper-level winds over the area,
this system is likely to become a tropical depression while it moves northeastward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea and southeastern Gulf of Mexico late Thursday or Friday. Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall is likely across portions of southeastern Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula, Guatemala, and Belize during the next couple of days, spreading across western Cuba, southern Florida, and the Florida Keys on Friday and Saturday. Interests in the Yucatan Peninsula, western Cuba, the Florida Keys
and the Florida Peninsula should monitor the progress of this system.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent.

The Atlantic Hurricane Season officially starts on Wednesday.
