Forecasters are closely monitoring a low-pressure system advancing into the Gulf of Mexico. There’s a likelihood of showers and thunderstorms in Sebastian as the system moves closer to Florida’s west coast.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) indicated a strong possibility of a tropical depression forming either later this weekend or at the beginning of next week. Currently, the system is advancing north, triggering scattered showers and thunderstorms.
Florida’s west coast residents, notably around Tampa and the panhandle, are advised to stay updated on this system’s progression, as there is a 70 percent chance of formation during the next seven days.
The NHC further mentioned, “Interests in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, western Cuba, and Florida should monitor the progress of this system.”
Presently, weather projections suggest the emergence of a tropical depression that will make its way onto Florida’s western shores before crossing the state in a northeast direction. Current models don’t foresee a tropical storm or hurricane. However, it remains early for definitive forecasts.
The three other disturbances in the Atlantic are moving farther out to sea. There’s no threat to Sebastian, Florida.
