Invest 99L became Tropical Depression Nine late yesterday afternoon. T.D. Nine is currently over the Straits of Florida, however the showers and thunderstorms associated with this depression are well to the south of the center of circulation. The system is expected to move into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico later today before turning north-northeasterly later Tuesday night. South Florida is already beginning to experience some showers and thunderstorms from the influential deep tropical moisture. As T.D Nine approaches Florida, expected rainfall amounts range from 3 to 5 inches for South Florida through Wednesday. Western Florida is expected to receive higher amounts ranging from 7 to 10 inches upon landfall with the highest amounts expected to impact the Nature Coast.
Today’s high temperatures are expected to be seasonally warm ranging from the upper 80s near coastal regions and the mid 90s for inland areas. Tomorrow morning’s low temperatures range from mid 70s to low 80s. Heat index values are forecast to be in the 100-105 range for west central and southwest Florida. Todays winds are expected to be light and breezy statewide ranging from 10 to 15 mph with higher gusts possible across coastal areas in South Florida.
A high risk of rip currents is forecast for all east coast Florida beaches today. Also, there is a moderate risk of rip currents along all Panhandle beaches. There is a low risk of rip currents at all other Florida beaches today. Rip currents can still occur on low risk days. Beach goers are urged to check with local beach rescue for the latest surf conditions and to always swim within sight of a lifeguard.
Tropical Depression Nine has maximum sustained winds of 35 mph moving west at 8mph. The center of circulation is currently located over the Straits of Florida, with the bulk of thunderstorms and showers located over Cuba and the extreme northern Caribbean Sea. The system is expected to move into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico later today, where environmental conditions are forecast to be slightly limited for further development within the next 48 hours. Forecast models have T.D. Nine slightly intensifying within the 48-120 hour forecast period. Elsewhere, Tropical Depression Eight is located south-southwest of North Carolina with maximum sustained winds of 35mph moving northwest at 9mph. Also, a tropical wave is expected to come off the coast of Africa on Tuesday, and it has a 50% (medium) chance of development through five days. Hurricane Gaston in the central Atlantic poses no threat to any land areas. For more information from the National Hurricane Center, click here.
