Florida could see Tropical Storm Humberto later this week

If it does strengthen into a tropical storm, it would be named Humberto.

High temperatures will be in the upper 80s for Friday and Saturday.

Conditions could be favorable enough for the system to keep developing after it brings rain to the hurricane-ravaged Bahamas and South Florida. It will remain warm and muggy with highs in the lower 90s and heat index values near 103.

"It will be moving west-northwest and it will increase our chance for rain by Friday", said Fox 35 meteorologist Kristin Giannas. Although this disturbance continues to produce disorganized shower activity, some slight development of this system is still possible on Wednesday.

A tropical wave slowly heading toward Florida has highly increased chances of developing into an organized storm over the next five days, according to the National Hurricane Center.

There's also a second tropical wave approaching the Caribbean within the next five days that could also become a tropical depression.

Forecasters say the area of showers and storms, now sitting near the Turks and Caicos Islands, will move over the state late this week, enhancing the chance of rain through the weekend.

Both the European model and the American model do not have the system organizing until just before it reaches the beaches of the panhandle. Rain coverage today should be around 40%, and storms could start firing up a little earlier in the day. This wind shear is expected to continue over the system, which means any development will be hindered altogether or slow to occur over the next few days.

A broad low pressure system associated with a tropical wave is located about 800 miles east of the lesser Antilles.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the National Hurricane Center had Gabrielle moving northeast at 29 miles per hour with sustained winds of 50 miles per hour.
