A wide band of showers and thunderstorms over the Yucatán Peninsula could turn into Tropical Storm Alex or a tropical depression before hitting Florida on Saturday.
NHC issued a tropical storm watch for southern Florida's east and west coasts and Florida Keys
Matanzas, Mayabeque, Havana, Artemisa, Pinar del Rio, and the Isle of Youth have a tropical storm watch.
The NHC created the term 'potential tropical cyclone' to issue watches and warnings for storm systems projected to form near land.
The NHC expects a 90% likelihood a depression or tropical storm will emerge within 48 hours. Level 3 risk for extreme rainfall and flash flooding.
The computer forecast models are beginning to concur that a tropical storm or depression will form and hit southern Florida.
Friday and Saturday will see gusty gusts and a few isolated tornadoes, the Miami NWS predicted. Details depend on the system's path.
Until the NHC identifies the storm's centre, forecast models can't reliably estimate its path. A hurricane hunter plane is headed to locate the circulation centre.
