Tropical Storm Humberto increases odds of development as it heads toward Florida

Florida could see Tropical Storm Humberto later this week

Florida could see Tropical Storm Humberto later this week

The peak is due to ocean water temperatures reaching their warmest, along with a drop in unfavorable shearing winds aloft.

If nothing else, the system could bring higher rain chances and cooler temperatures to at least part of Alabama this weekend, forecasters said.

Environmental conditions could become more favorable for development when the system moves into the Gulf of Mexico.

Limited development of this disturbance is expected during the next few days mainly because of upper-level winds.

Should the system organize into a tropical depression it will be the ninth recorded depression of the year, and if it then grows to maintain at least 39 miles per hour sustained winds, it would become Tropical Storm Humberto. Although this disturbance continues to produce disorganized shower activity, some slight development of this system is still possible on Wednesday.

The first is located in the mid-Atlantic, 650 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. These conditions favor the growth of tropical waves that frequently march across the Atlantic in mid to late September which seed developing tropical cyclones. There are now several other systems in the Atlantic.

- A tropical wave moving towards Florida will likely make for a rainy weekend, but it's unlikely to develop into anything more substantial until it enters the Gulf of Mexico.

The National Hurricane Center has given Invest95L ("Invest" short for Investigative Area) a 60% chance of developing into a tropical depression or stronger in the next 5 days.

There's a new tropical wave just off the west coast of Africa, according to the National Hurricane Center. This wind shear is expected to continue over the system, which means any development will be hindered altogether or slow to occur over the next few days.
