Post Another Tropical System Off the Florida Coast?
Things are beginning to heat up! There is also a very healthy tropical wave that just came off the coast of Africa.

Could get interesting this weekend.

Late-afternoon satellite image courtesy of NOAA. Meteorologists continue to monitor an area of low pressure located over the northern Bahamas for potential development over the next day or so.

A large area of showers and thunderstorms currently drenching the central and northwestern Bahamas will continue to slowly track northwestward over the next day or two.

Over the last few hours, satellite imagery has shown some slight organization of this feature. Some twisting in the shower activity can also be noted on radar imagery out of Miami.

According to Tropical Expert Dan Kottlowski, "This feature is a surface trough of low pressure which developed on the northern fringes of a tropical wave. Surface pressures have fallen the last few hours north of Cuba, east of Florida, and west of the Bahamas."

If surface pressures continue to fall tonight and early Saturday, there is a possibility that this system could wrap up into an organized tropical system before moving onshore over Florida.

Kottlowski stated that "There is a small chance that this system wraps up over the next 24-36 hours. The most critical time to watch is going to be during the day Saturday, because by Saturday night, this system will be moving onshore over Florida."
