National Hurricane Center meteorologists are eyeing a small low-pressure system just northwest of Lake Okeechobee — but odds remain low that it will strengthen into a tropical cyclone in the coming days.
By 2 p.m. Sunday, the disorganized system moved inland over the south-central Florida peninsula. Some development could occur when the system moves westward over the Gulf of Mexico Monday.
However, tropical cyclone formation chance through the next five days is only 10%.
By late Tuesday or Wednesday, forecasters predict upper-level winds will weaken the system while it moves westward to west-northwestward about 10 mph, the National Hurricane Center reported.
Meanwhile, distant Hurricane Teddy’s swells have triggered a high rip current risk warning, a high surf advisory and a coastal flood warning through 8 p.m. Tuesday for Brevard County.
