IN THE TROPICS
An area of low pressure located several hundred miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing persistent but disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear conducive for some development, and a tropical depression could form during the next few days before upper-level winds become less favorable toward the end of the week. The system is expected to meander during the next day or two and then move slowly north-northwestward. The formation chance through 5 days is medium, at 50 percent.
Hurricane Ian is forecast to bring heavy rain, with the possibility of mudslides in higher terrain, and hurricane-force winds to Cuba and Jamaica on Monday, and is expected to impact the Florida Gulf coast by Friday. Hazardous conditions are forecast in the eastern and central Gulf as early as Monday night and continuing much of the week.
