BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – National Hurricane Center has released their latest report on tropical system activity in the Atlantic late Thursday night.

At this time, experts with the National Hurricane Center (NHC) are closely monitoring Invest 98, a tropical system that is becoming looming threat for the Gulf, including Florida.

The system will highly likely develop into a tropical depression in the next 48 hours.

Forecast models show the system will move to the mainland U.S., where both the Gulf of Mexico region and the Florida Peninsula have possibilities of being affected.

As of Thursday night, showers and thunderstorms remain disorganized in association with a low pressure system located over the southeastern Caribbean Sea about 150 miles east-northeast of Curacao.

The upper-level wind environment over the low is expected to become more conducive for development, and a tropical depression is expected to form during the next day or two while moving west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the central Caribbean Sea.

Locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds are likely to affect northwestern Venezuela, the ABC island chain, and northeastern Colombia through Friday.

Those in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands should closely monitor the progress of this system, according to NHC.
