BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — There is a 70-percent chance that a tropical wave south of Florida may develop into a system, while forecasters at the National Hurricane Center say there is a 20 percent chance that wave in the Gulf also develops. The systems are noted in red and yellow, above. We note that the ovals on the map indicate an area where a system may form, not necessarily a direction of travel.

This is the Sunday morning outlook from the National Hurricane Center.

Official Afternoon Outlook From National Hurricane Center for June 26th, 2022:

Tropical Weather Outlook NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 200 PM EDT Sun Jun 26 2022

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

  1. Central Tropical Atlantic: Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a tropical wave located about 1000 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands continues to show signs of organization. Environmental conditions appear conducive for further development, and a tropical depression is likely to form during the early to the middle part of this week. This system is forecast to move westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph over the tropical Atlantic, approach the Windward Islands on Tuesday, and move across the southeastern Caribbean Sea on Wednesday and Thursday. Interests in the Windward Islands should monitor the progress of this system.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…40 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent.
  1. Northern Gulf of Mexico: Disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the north-central and northeastern Gulf of Mexico are associated with a trough of low pressure. Development of this system is expected to be slow to occur as it drifts westward to west-southwestward across the northern Gulf of Mexico over the next few days.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
