Insert 98-L, most likely to be named as a hurricane, on its way to Central Florida
Enter the 98-L IS developing in the Southwest Atlantic Sunday morning.
The disturbance we’re watching, called Invest 98-L, is now 200 miles north of Puerto Rico.
East of the Bahamas is likely to become a tropical or subtropical storm over the next few days.
A turn to Florida is expected mid-week.
As we wait, waves continue to rise and seas become more dangerous along our beaches.
The risk of significant shoreline erosion and coastal flooding will increase Wednesday night, especially during high tides.
The system could remain nearby Thursday through Friday with heavy rain and continued flooding threats across Central Florida.
Strong offshore winds will develop along the coast, while inland winds will depend on the strength and track of the system.
Invest 98-L is likely to become a nominal storm in the next few days.
The previous story.
We are seeing growing concerns with scattered showers and storms moving into the Southwest Atlantic later today.
We will likely see a tropical or subtropical system develop in the southwest Atlantic over the next few days.
This will bring dangerous conditions to Florida’s coastline and seas.
Many models are predicting a developing tropical system to reach Florida’s east coast by the middle of next week.
If this happens, more areas of Florida and Central Florida will experience tropical impacts.
