in Florida News & Events


A tropical disturbance is becoming better organized Thursday and has a 70% chance of developing into a tropical depression, according to the National Hurricane Center.

“Conditions are becoming favorable for a tropical depression or a tropical storm to form within the next day or so as the system moves toward the northwest through the northwestern Bahamas and toward the Florida Peninsula at 5 to 10 mph,” the NHC said.

If the system continues to develop at this rate, it’s possible the NHC will issue tropical cyclone advisories later on Thursday.
