A budding tropical disturbance has the potential to reach Florida with gusty winds, showers and thunderstorms during Sunday and Monday. Only one of two active Atlantic tropical systems poses a significant threat to land during the next 10 days. That system, dubbed 99L, has the potential to become Tropical Depression Eight and Tropical Storm Hermine late this week.
The disturbance, currently located about 1,600 miles southeast of Miami, is forecast to take a general west-northwest path near Puerto Rico late Wednesday and just north of Hispaniola during Thursday. “99L has the potential to become very well-organized over the Bahamas, just east of Florida this weekend,” according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.
