Tropical Storm Watch Issued for Space Coast. Don’t Panic.

A tropical storm watch is now up for parts of the Florida Coast in anticipation of what may become Tropical Storm Humberto. A high level of uncertainty still remains as to the long term track and intensity.

Key messages from the NHC…

1. The disturbance is expected to become a tropical storm and bring
tropical storm force winds to portions of the northwest Bahamas
within 36 hours. Note that forecast uncertainty for these
disturbances is generally larger than for tropical cyclones,
especially beyond 48-72 hours.

2. The system is expected to bring tropical-storm-force winds and
heavy rainfall to portions of the northwest Bahamas on Friday and
Saturday. Significant storm surge is not expected in the northwest
Bahamas from this system. Residents there should follow any advice
given by local officials.

3. The system could bring tropical-storm-force winds and rainfall
to portions of the Florida east coast over the weekend. Residents
there should monitor the progress of this system.
