AccuWeather.com is sounding the alarm about the possibility of new tropical system taking aim at Florida next week:
“On the heels of Bonnie, a new tropical system may take shape in the southeastern Gulf of Mexico and travel across Florida, with building seas and the potential for flooding, early next week.
“Interests in the region should continue to monitor the area for potential adverse weather conditions beginning this weekend.
Never miss a local story.
“A growing area of showers and thunderstorms over the central Caribbean Sea will travel northwestward and end up near the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico this weekend. From near the Yucatan Peninsula to the eastern Gulf of Mexico, a tropical system may be born early next week.
“Steering winds will eventually pick up and steer the feature northeastward.
“At this time, the most likely path will take the system onshore along the west coast of Florida, across the Florida Peninsula and into the Atlantic during the first part of next week.”
