Tropical Storm warning in effect for Florida panhandle

Tropical Storm warning in effect for Florida panhandle”

The system has become slightly better organized in the past several hours, and its showers and thunderstorms have increased, according to the National Hurricane Center. However, the National Hurricane Center calls the setup "a complicated weather situation", as it is uncertain if the system - likely to be named Nestor - will be designated a tropical or a subtropical storm.

Potential Tropical Cyclone 16 was located in the Gulf of Mexico Thursday, moving across the Gulf.

"Tropical development can occur at any time into Saturday as the system travels northeastward over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico", Dan Kottlowski, AccuWeather hurricane expert, said. As of now most models bring a weather tropical storm (Nestor) into the northern Gulf coast by the weekend.

Forecasters say the system will approach the Gulf Coast on Friday or Saturday with gusty winds and rough seas regardless of whether it develops further. The European model shows the low-pressure system moving into Louisiana and the American model shows it moving into the Florida panhandle.

As of Wednesday, Oct. 15, there have been 15 tropical depressions, 13 tropical storms, five hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes in the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season. At the moment it looks like a low end tropical storm would be the most we see.

Otherwise this system moves east quickly Friday night and Saturday is looking mainly dry.

The Atlantic hurricane season lasts until November 30.
