BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center in Miami says that system that’s been meandering in the Gulf of Mexico for several days is likely to become a tropical depression later Friday or possibly on Saturday. While it poses no threat to Florida, parts of Texas are be advised to pay attention as the system approaches.

This is a special weather statement from the National Hurricane Center issued mid-day Friday:

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

  1. Southwestern Gulf of Mexico: Satellite imagery indicates that showers and thunderstorms associated with the broad low pressure area over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico and the Bay of Campeche continue to become better organized. Environmental conditions appear favorable for additional development, and a tropical depression could form later today, tonight, or on Saturday while the system moves northwestward across the southwestern and western Gulf of Mexico. However, by Saturday night, the system is expected to move inland over northeastern Mexico, which will end its chances of development. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is currently enroute to investigate the system. Interests along the northeastern coast of Mexico and the lower Texas coast should monitor the progress of this system. Regardless of development, this system could bring locally heavy rains to portions of northeastern Mexico and southern Texas over the weekend.
  • Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent.
