Your Latest Florida Weather Information

As of 5 PM we are now tracking Tropical Depression 17. Depression 17 is forecast to strengthen into a tropical storm as it recurves back to the NE. In fact, some of the models are forecasting a major hurricane before it crosses Cuba. Conditions in this area are extremly favorable for development. Near the end of the forecast period, verticle shear is expected to increase and this will bring about an abrupt weakening of the system at day 5. Late season storms are sometimes very slow moving so the forecast guidance may be too quick in taking the system out of the Caribbean.
