Watching Gulf: Too Early for Specifics

September 25, 2015

A disorganized area of thunderstorms near the Yucatan peninsula is being closely monitored for possible tropical development in the coming days. If tropical development were to occur, forecast data suggests the system could potentially start to influence the weather pattern across The Sunshine State, largely in the form of an increase in rain chances, on Monday. While it's too early for specifics on the exact track or strength of the possible storm, we do have a reasonable amount of confidence that portions of the panhandle and maybe the Nature Coast are more likely to see some heavier rain early next week. Updates all weekend from the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network, will be available on the new mobile app, Florida Storms, available on the iOS store today.
