By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is closely monitoring a disturbance moving slowly northeastward over the Southeastern Gulf of Mexico.
As of this morning, the disturbance was centered near latitude 22.4 North, and longitude 86.8 West.
The system is moving toward the northeast near 6 mph (9 km/h).
The system is forecast to move across the southeastern Gulf of Mexico through tonight, across the southern and central portions of the Florida Peninsula on Saturday, and then over the southwestern Atlantic north of the northwestern Bahamas Saturday afternoon through Sunday.
NHC noted that data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds remain near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
The system is expected to develop a well-defined center and become a tropical storm later today, and some slight strengthening is possible while it approaches Florida today and tonight.
There is a 90% chance of formation during the next 48 hours.
