NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER  – The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a tropical disturbance in the Caribbean that was expected to move into the Gulf of Mexico later this week and could bring heavy rains to Brevard County over the Memorial Day Weekend.

The disturbance has a 70 percent chance of developing into  Tropical Storm “Alberto,” according to the National Hurricane Center. Although the hurricane season does not officially begin until June 1, tropical storms occasionally form before then.

Currently, the National Hurricane Center says a broad surface low is centered near the coast of northeastern Belize and continues to produce a large area of cloudiness and showers extending from the northwestern Caribbean Sea across Cuba and into the Florida Straits.

Little development is expected during the next couple of days due to strong upper-level winds and proximity to the Yucatan Peninsula.

However, environmental conditions are then forecast to become more conducive for development, and a subtropical or tropical depression could form this weekend over the eastern or central Gulf of Mexico.

Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall is possible across western Cuba and the Cayman Islands during the next few days, and over much of Florida and the northern Gulf Coast during the weekend.
