Hurricane forecasters to keep an eye on Gulf this weekend

Likelihood of tropical development next week in Gulf of Mexico is increasing, forecasters say

NHC forecasts that a broad area of low pressure will form over the northwestern Caribbean Sea and adjacent land areas in the next two days.

Another system now located about 1,800 miles (2,890 km) east of the southern Windward Islands has a 40 percent chance of developing into a tropical storm in the next 48 hours, the Miami-based weather forecaster said.

The National Hurricane Center on Friday said there's a good chance something will develop in the Gulf of Mexico in the next few days. It could be possible that there could be a tropical depression or named-weak tropical storm by Sunday or early Monday, if this organization continues and atmospheric conditions become more favorable.

Invest 92 has a 20 percent chance of developing in the next two days and a 40 percent chance of developing in the next five days.

The window of development for this tropical system extends from late Sunday toWednesday night. When systems form in the Gulf of Mexico during the month of June, most storms tend to be wide, ragged and most of the convection keeps to its eastern side (of direction).

The next name of the 2017 hurricane name list is Bret.

This image is a blend of model data that is suggesting a decent probability of deep tropical moisture to occur over the northeast Gulf of Mexico sometime early next week.

There's another tropical system brewing in the Atlantic as well.
