By Space Coast Daily // August 25, 2021
hurricane season began on June 1, runs through November 30
Five-day forecast shows none of the systems are a threat to Florida at this time.
One disturbance NHC is watching closely is located north of Colombia and contains s broad area of low pressure that is expected to form over the western Caribbean Sea during the next day or so from a tropical wave.
Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development, and a tropical depression or tropical storm is likely to form late this week or over the weekend.
The system is expected to move northwestward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea and near or across the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico on Friday and into the Gulf of Mexico this weekend, where conditions are expected to be favorable for additional development.
Regardless of development, heavy rainfall and flooding will be possible through the weekend in portions of Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula.
In addition, this system could bring dangerous impacts from storm surge, wind, and heavy rainfall to portions of the coasts of Louisiana, Texas, and the Mexican state of Tamaulipas late this weekend and early next week.
However, uncertainty remains large since the system has yet to form.
Interests in these areas should closely monitor the progress of this system and ensure they have their hurricane plan in place. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system Thursday afternoon, if necessary.
The Atlantic hurricane season is now peak season.
Hurricane season runs through November 30.
