Tropical disturbance moisture to impact South Florida Friday

There's a slimmer chance it will upgrade in the next two days - only 10 percent. This system is forecast to move to the northwest through the week.

The National Hurricane Center now forecasts a low chance of development, 20%, over the next five days.

As the system moves west-northwestward across the Caribbean Sea and the Greater Antilles during the next few days, it is expected to bring locally heavy rainfall and possibly some flooding across portions of these islands.

As we approach the middle of storm season in Florida, it is possible we may be looking at the development of a tropical storm approaching.

Computer models are in slight agreement that Invest 95L will track northwesterly across the eastern Caribbean towards the east coast of Florida.


AccuWeather Meteorologist Brett Rathbun said waters are sufficiently warm for development of the system.

Signs of August coming off Africa in the form of a rather robust wave that some of the models do more with than the current invest#95L in the eastern Caribbean. For now we'll just keep an eye on it.

Forecasters, however, predict the wave could strengthen as it heads north.

If either system becomes a tropical storm, the next name on the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane names list is Tropical Storm Chantal.
