BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – National Hurricane Center is eyeing a new tropical system in the Atlantic that has a 90% chance to become a tropical depression by the end of Tuesday, heading into Wednesday.

Currently located about thousand miles east of the Lesser Antilles, the system is beginning to form circulation around the center on Tuesday.

If the tropical wave continues on its current path moving west-northwestward at around 15 mph, it will pass through some conducive areas to develop further in the next couple of days..

However, experts at the National Hurricane Center note that the system will reach unfavorable conditions by the end of the week when it will meet some high level wind shear, known to break apart similar-like storms.

Should this system increase in strength and become a Tropical Storm, it would be named Josephine.
