First advisory issued on Potential Tropical Cyclone headed into Gulf

More showers are in your forecast next week as high pressure to our north and low pressure from the Gulf of Mexico feed us a plume of rich, tropical moisture toward the Midlands. Additional strengthening is expected and is anticipated to become a hurricane before making landfall along the FL panhandle on Wednesday.

The forecast path for Tropical Depression 14 as of Sunday morning, October 7.

The depression is expected to strengthen to a tropical storm late Sunday, possibly reaching category 1 hurricane status by the time it approaches the Florida panhandle Tuesday night. The low, called Invest 91-L for now, has a good chance of developing into our next named tropical system.

Happy Saturday night! While you're enjoying your weekend, things are looking to become busy in the world of weather.

The storm at 8 a.m. was travelling with 35-mph winds.




The Hurricane Center noted that hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles. Western Cuba could see isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches, the center said. With a movement of 3 mph, it's nearly loitering 100 miles east northeast of Chetumal, Mexico, and 240 miles south southwest of Cuba's western tip.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The National Hurricane Center is beginning to issue advisories for Potential Tropical Cyclone 14.

There is still a lot of uncertainty with the strength and timing with this system.

The National Weather Service gave the system a 70 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression or storm within the next five days as it heads north-northwest out of the Caribbean.

Regardless of the storm's exact landfall location, local impacts will mainly be rain.
