Florida may get much windier and wetter next week

A large non-tropical area of low pressure will likely develop in the southwestern Atlantic this weekend and track toward Florida or the southeast U.S.

It is expected to be very broad and disorganized at first, but if certain conditions are present, organization into a sub-tropical or tropical system is possible early to mid-next week.

Although substantial development is not expected at this time, this slow-moving feature could bring very windy and rainy weather to Florida Monday through late next week.

Strong winds may lead to an increased risk for rip currents and beach erosion, while several inches of rain could cause local and coastal flooding.

There is still some uncertainty with the track and intensity of this system since it’s in the very early stages of evolution. And there is also no need to panic, but please prepare for possibly much windier and wetter weather next week.
