Tropical depression may form over Caribbean Sea soon


HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Epsilon moving northward away from Bermuda. Epsilon currently has wind speeds of 85 mph. Epsilon remains a large storm in the northern Atlantic.

Large swells generated by Epsilon are expected to reach portions of the east coast of the United States and Atlantic Canada during the next couple of days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

An area of disturbed weather over the western Caribbean Sea is getting better organized and now has a high chance (70%) chance of becoming a tropical depression over the weekend. Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall and rough seas is possible over portions of Cuba, South Florida, and the Bahamas through early next week.

Hurricane season officially ends on the last day of November, but Texans can usually breathe a sigh of relief by mid-October once the jet stream shifts and fall cold fronts start pushing through the Lone Star State.

You’ll still want to continue to stay prepared and have your hurricane preparedness plan in place, just in case.
