BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The tropical system churning in the Wester Caribbean is expected to track near — and possibly quite near — South Florida over the next few days. While it is not a named storm at this point, there is a 30 percent chance of it developing over the next 48 hours, and a 40 percent chance of it developing over the next five days. Note that the orange area above represents where the system may become an official named storm, not necessarily a path of travel.
Here is the latest from the National Hurricane Center as of early Friday morning.
