By Space Coast Daily // May 12, 2020
Hurricane season begins June 1
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – National Hurricane Center has increased the probability of a subtropical system developing a couple hundred northeast of the Bahamas over this coming weekend.
According to the 9 p.m. report on Tuesday, the system currently has a 70-percent chance of forming into a subtropical system in the next five days as “environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development of this system,” according to the National Hurricane Center.
Experts are projecting a subtropical depression or storm is likely to form this weekend while it moves northeastward over the western Atlantic.
The system is not expected to impact Florida. However, increased wave activity is likely this weekend on the Space Coast as the potential storm moves through the Atlantic.
Earlier on Tuesday, the chance for further development of the system was 50-percent.
If the system develops into the first named storm of 2020, it would be called ‘Arthur’.
Hurricane season officially begins on June 1.
The next scheduled update on this system will be Wednesday at 9 a.m. ET.
