The 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season is underway. Meteorologists are predicting the first system could make landfall in Florida tomorrow.

The National Hurricane Center is reporting an area of low pressure could develop near the Yucatan Peninsula. There is now a 90% chance that a tropical depression will form somewhere between the Yucatan and the southern half of Florida. Cuba could also be impacted from this system and if it were to develop into a tropical storm, it would be named Alex.

Rain predictions are anywhere from 5 to 10 inches.

Regardless of development, areas of heavy rainfall are likely across portions of the Yucatan Peninsula and western Cuba during the next day or so, spreading across southern and central Florida and the Florida Keys Friday and Friday night, and the northwestern Bahamas on Saturday. These heavy rains could cause scattered to numerous flash floods across South Florida and the Florida Keys.
