Tropical disturbance creeps closer to Florida  3 Weeks ago

Source:   USA Today  

A tropical disturbance that formed Wednesday near the Bahamas is spinning toward Florida. The National Hurricane Center gives the system a 30% chance of tropical development within the next five days.

"Additional slow development is possible during the next several days while the system moves northwestward toward the Florida peninsula at 5 to 10 mph and then turns northeastward off the southeastern coast of the United States," the hurricane center said.

If the storm's winds reach 39 mph, it would become Tropical Storm Dorian.

Exactly where the storm goes is uncertain until it actually forms, AccuWeather said. Its proximity to the coast and steering winds, however, could guide it ashore and into the U.S., AccuWeather meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said.

Regardless of development, locally heavy rains are possible over portions of the southern Florida peninsula during the next day or two.

Because of the heavy rain, "some flooding will be possible across the region on Friday and into the upcoming weekend especially in the low-lying and poor drainage areas," the National Weather Service in Miami said.

Meanwhile, far out in the Atlantic, Tropical Depression Chantal is wandering far from land. The hurricane center said the storm should fade over the next couple of days.

And in the eastern Pacific Ocean, Tropical Storm Ivo could become a hurricane later Thursday or Friday. It poses no threat to any land area and is expected to stay well off the west coast of Mexico. As of midday Thursday, the center of Ivo was 550 miles south-southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula.
