South Florida residents urged to keep eye on Atlantic tropical disturbance

The National Hurricane Center is closely monitoring a tropical disturbance in the Atlantic Ocean that could affect South Florida by the middle of next week.

The disturbance is currently in the middle of the Atlantic and has yet to develop a tropical cyclone, but the wave has a 70 percent chance of developing.

However, the NHC believes conditions in the Atlantic are not looking so good for intense development.

"While it would take only a slight increase in organization for a tropical depression, upper-level winds are becoming less favorable for development early next week." according to the NHC in its Friday morning discussion.

Computer models show the system heading in a north-northwest direction through next week, with whatever it turns out to be being in the South Florida area by Wednesday morning.
