The National Hurricane Center updated its forecast on Tuesday with a 60 percent chance of a tropical depression near Florida from the remnants of Hurricane Agatha.
There is no threat of a hurricane in Sebastian, Florida. However, Agatha may have an impact on our weather later this week.
“This system could become a tropical depression while it moves northeastward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea and southeastern Gulf of Mexico late this week.,” NHC said in a statement.
Agatha will dissipate by Wednesday morning before it reaches the Gulf of Mexico. After that, an area of low pressure carrying the hurricane’s remnants will merge where it could gradually develop and drift eastward for Florida.
A 60 percent chance of formation does not mean a hurricane, and many forecasters speculate if the system will ever become more than a tropical depression.
If the system impacts us in Sebastian, we can expect a lot of rain, which we need desperately.
The 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season begins Wednesday, June 1, 2022. The season will be end on Wednesday, November 30, 2022.
