System chances increasing

9-11-8amHOLT, Fla., Sept. 11, 2019—The National Hurricane Center has increased chances for the low near the Bahamas to develop.

The low-pressure system, identified as Invest 95 by the NHC, now has a 60 percent chance of development during the five-day forecast period.

According to the hurricane center, limited development is anticipated today or tomorrow; however, conditions are forecast to become a little more favorable during the weekend.

A tropical depression could form as the system moves slowly toward the west-northwest across the Florida Straits or south Florida and over the Gulf of Mexico.

This system could produce periods of heavy rain and gusty winds across Florida during the weekend.

The other two areas have low chances for further development.

The low-pressure system east of the Lesser Antilles is expected to move into unfavorable conditions while the one closer to Africa is expected to move quickly westward during the next several days.

Some slow development is possible during the weekend or early next week as it moves over the tropical Atlantic, according to the NHC.
