BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) – Just when you thought hurricane season was over, there’s a new system in Southeast Florida.
It’s unnamed and, at this point, just a condition being watched by forecasters at the National Hurricane Center. The system, early Saturday morning, had only 20 percent to turn into a named storm within the next five days. The yellow oval you see on the map above is not necessarily a direction of travel, but an indication of where a system can grow into something more.
What can best be described as an orange “spot”, also on the map above, continues to drift away from the Americas.
Although late in the season, the development of the system is not without precedent. The Atlantic hurricane season continues until the end of November.
This is the latest update from the National Hurricane Center.
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: 1. Showers continue to show some signs of organization near a strong, frontal low pressure system located several hundred miles south-southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland. The nontropical low is likely to lose its associated fronts this weekend while it moves southeastward toward slightly warmer waters, and thereafter it could transition to a subtropical storm later this weekend or early next week over the central Atlantic. The system is expected to turn northward and move toward colder waters by the middle of next week. For more information on this system, including gale warnings, see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service. * Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent. 2. An area of disturbed weather in the eastern tropical Atlantic is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms several hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands. Some gradual development of this system is possible over the next couple of days or so as the disturbance moves generally northwestward at 10 to 15 mph. By the middle of next week, the system is forecast to move northward over cooler waters and further development is not expected. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
