Atlantic Hurricane Season Not Over Yet, 90 Percent Chance Of Formation Over Next Five Days
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The National Hurricane Center is watching yet another system off of Florida’s east coast. The system has an 80 percent chance of developing into a tropical depression or tropical storm over the next 48 hours, and a 90 percent chance of developing over the next five days. The system — marked by the red X — appears to be well north of South Florida, but this is the sort of hurricane season where keeping an eye on everything is a good idea.
The next storm name is Epsilon.
Here is the official Sunday morning update from the National Hurricane Center.
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: 1. Showers and thunderstorms associated with a non-tropical low pressure system located about 550 miles east-southeast of Bermuda have been gradually increasing in both coverage and organization during the past 24 hours. Further development is expected, and a subtropical depression or storm is very likely to form during the next day or so while the low meanders well to the southeast of Bermuda. * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent. 2. A broad area of low pressure is expected to form in a couple of days over the southwestern Caribbean Sea. Some gradual development of this system will be possible through the middle of the week as it moves slowly northward or north-northwestward over the western Caribbean Sea. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.
