A cold front approaching the Florida Keys in the southeast Gulf of Mexico this afternoon is expected to stall and become a stationary front near or just to the north. This, in combination with a broad area of low pressure gradually developing in the northwest Caribbean Sea by the weekend, will result in increasing showers and thunderstorms and a focus for potentially heavy rainfall. Primary impacts include:
The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a tropical wave over the west-central Caribbean Sea, which is expected to develop a broad area of low pressure over the western Caribbean Sea by Thursday night or Friday. This system has a medium chance for development into a tropical cyclone, and mainly NOT before this weekend. Any potential development is currently expected to remain well to the southwest of the Florida Keys through at least the middle of next week.
We will issue additional Flash Reports as needed
