Here's the latest on the tropics and what it means for Central Florida
Humberto brings lower rain chances to Orlando area
ORLANDO, Fla. – The National Hurricane Center continues to monitor three systems in the tropics, including Hurricane Humberto.
Humberto is expected to lash Bermuda with high winds and heavy rain later this week as it moves away from Florida.
Experts say Humberto could become a major hurricane by Wednesday morning. The Bermuda Weather Service has issued a tropical storm watch for the island.
As of early Tuesday, Humberto was about 670 miles west of Bermuda, with maximum sustained winds of 90 mph. The storm was moving east-northeast at 7 mph.
Over the next few days, swells generated by Humberto will roil the northwestern Bahamas coast as well as the southeastern U.S. Atlantic coast from Central Florida to North Carolina. Such swells could pose life-threatening surf and rip current conditions to swimmers and surfers.
Meanwhile, an area of low pressure is moving closer to Texas but only has a 30% chance of development over the next five days.
And a small low-pressure system more than 1,000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles formed tropical depression 10 Tuesday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center. The system is expected to become a tropical storm later Tuesday and Hurricane Imelda later this week.
