Tropical Development Likely East Of Florida This Weekend

May 26, 2016

With hurricane season less than week away, here's the latest update from the The Florida Public Radio Emergency Network:

  • Tropical development likely, but it would be weak
  • High confidence system stays east of Florida with minimal impacts
  • Regardless, rain chances and rip current risks are on the rise

10 a.m.: The National Hurricane Center now says the disturbance between Bermuda and The Bahamas (referred to as Invest 91) has a “high” chance of developing. However, confidence has also increased that it will stay well to the east of Florida and have more of an impact in South or North Carolina this weekend. Regardless of Invest 91’s track or strength, rain chances will be on the rise across parts of the state this weekend and seas will be a bit rough along the Atlantic beaches.
