Something is Brewing Near Florida
Could the area outlined above be a new breeding ground for tropical cyclone development? The National Hurricane Center is highlighting the waters off the southwest coast of Florida as a potential area for tropical depression development during the next 2 days.
A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM LOCATED OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN GULF OF MEXICO...A LITTLE LESS THAN 100 MILES WEST OF SOUTHWEST COAST OF THE FLORIDA PENINSULA...IS ACCOMPANIED BY A LARGE AREA OF SHOWERS AND SQUALLS. ALTHOUGH THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE CHANGE IN ORGANIZATION DURING THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS...UPPER-LEVEL WINDS ARE FORECAST TO
BECOME A LITTLE MORE CONDUCIVE FOR DEVELOPMENT. THERE IS A HIGH CHANCE...60 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL OR SUBTROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS THE LOW MOVES WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 5 TO 10 MPH.
