2019 Hurricane Season

A tropical depression is likely to form in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, but the latest forecast trends may keep the worst of the weather west of the state.

Regardless of its exact track, 1 to 3 inches of rain may fall by Thursday in places along the immediate Gulf coast from near Fort Myers to Pensacola. Nearby seas will also grow unsettled, with minor coastal flooding and a high risk of rip currents expected.

Forecasters are predicting a strong chance that a tropical system could develop in the Gulf by the end of the week. It could bring heavy rains and even flooding to the North Florida Panhandle. Regan McCarthy talked with Florida Public Radio meteorologist Jeff Huffman about what to expect.
