By National Weather Service - Melbourne // August 23, 2014
MELBOURNE FLORIDA — The fourth Tropical Depression of 2014 has formed in the Caribbean.
As of 5 p.m. Saturday, August 23, center of circulation was just north of Hispaniola.
According to the National Weather Service in Melbourne, the system is expected to gradually strengthen as it moves over the Bahamas the next several days.
The initial forecast track from the National Hurricane Center keeps the system to our east, however, considerable uncertainty remains.
On the forecast track, the system would produce elevated surf and rip current conditions along area beaches by early next week.
As we approach the peak of hurricane season, all east central Florida residents should continue to review their hurricane preparedness plans.
We will provide additional updates over the next several days.
