NHC: Tropical depression near Cuba may form by weekend”

The NHC forecast its odds of developing into a tropical depression within the next two days at 40%, and gave it a 70% chance of doing so in the next five days but only if it remains in Caribbean waters.

The National Hurricane Center continued to watch an area of low pressure in the northwest Caribbean on Friday, and it was getting its act together. Eastern Daylight Time on Friday, October 2, 2020, due to the presence of Tropical Depression Twenty-five (formerly Invest 91L) over the western Caribbean.

It will bring heavy rain to parts of Mexico, Central America and western Cuba over the next few days, the hurricane center said, and tropical storm watches or warnings could be issued for some of those areas later today or tonight.

It has a 30 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression in the next five days.

Starting next week and lasting through at least mid-October, conditions may be favorable for even more storm formation in the tropical Atlantic.

The depression's future intensity is also something of a wild card, but the Hurricane Center calls for the system to hold at tropical storm strength with peak winds between 45 and 50 miles per hour once it emerges over the Gulf of Mexico.

Colorado State University hurricane research scientist Phil Klotzbach said that CSU is calling for above-normal Atlantic hurricane activity in the forecast for the next two weeks.

"And the Europe model aggressively shows it crashing into the Yucatan".

The NOAA predicted in its mid season forecast a total of 19 to 25 named storms before the end of hurricane season, November 30.

If the system does develop into a tropical storm, it would have the name Gamma and be the 24th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic season.
