Tropical Depression Eight forms in Caribbean

Tropical Depression Eight has formed in the eastern Caribbean, with a track toward Florida as a Category 2 hurricane next week.

At 5 a.m., maximum sustained winds were at 35 mph, with higher gusts.

The depression is moving to the WNW at 13 mph.

The forecast cone does include parts of Florida, including South Florida and the Florida Keys.

Tropical storm force winds may impact Florida as early as Tuesday.

The depression is the eighth system to form during the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season.

It is too early to know about impacts to Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia but the track may move up the east coast bringing damage similar to Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

Regardless of the exact track, it is becoming likely rain chances will increase Wednesday through the end of next week.

This is a system to keep a very close eye on, as the long-term track remains uncertain.
