National Hurricane Center Tracking Depression Forecast to Become Hurricane Near Puerto Rico By Thursday

If depression strengthens into a storm it would be named either Dorian or Erin

SPACE COAST DAILY TV WEATHER UPDATE: Space Coast Daily’s Chris Bonanno discusses newly-formed NOAA NWS National Hurricane Center Tropical Depression 5 in the Atlantic and Brevard’s rain chances on Saturday. 

NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER – A new tropical depression, christened “TD Five,” has formed in the Atlantic southeast of the Lesser Antilles and the National Hurricane Center forecast currently call for it to become a tropical storm by Sunday morning and possibly a hurricane by early next week.

According to the National Hurricane Center, locally heavy rainfall is possible over southern and central Florida associated with this disturbance.

“Further east, another tropical disturbance well east of the Windward Islands also has a high chance of formation by early next week,” said the most recent NHC update.

If the depression strengthens into a storm it would be named either Dorian or Erin as there’s another system to the east of Florida that might develop into a tropical storm before this depression.

That system off the coast of Florida is forecast to stay over open water as if it moves parallel to the East Coast to the northeast.
