BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center says a tropical depression is now likely to form within the next few days, bringing heavy rain and gale-force winds to South Florida.

The system is marked by the red oval above. As we have clarified throughout the hurricane season, an oval indicates where a system may form, but not necessarily a direction of travel. Even so, the National Hurricane Center says South Florida should prepare for some rough weather in the first half of the week.

This is the Saturday afternoon advisory:

  1. Southwestern Atlantic: A trough of low pressure located over the eastern Caribbean Sea is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. The trough is forecast to move northward over the southwestern Atlantic by Sunday, where a broad area of low pressure is expected to form north of Hispaniola. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for gradual development, and a subtropical or tropical depression could form during the early part of next week while the system moves generally westward to west-northwestward over the southwestern Atlantic. Regardless of development, there is an increasing risk of coastal flooding, gale-force winds, heavy rainfall, rough surf, and beach erosion along much of the southeastern United States coast, the Florida east coast, and portions of the central and northwestern Bahamas during the early to middle part of next week. The disturbance is also expected to bring locally heavy rainfall to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands this weekend. Interests in those areas should monitor the progress of this system. * Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…40 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent.
