Only slow development of this system is anticipated during the next several days while it moves west-northwestward across the Bahamas and then turns northwestward or northward near Florida and the adjacent waters.




My question is:

This system is not very far from Florida now. I've been watching the sats and it sure appears to be moving at a somewhat respectable speed. Or at least the front part of it. So where do these "next several days" manifest into the forecast? On a typical day I'd watch thunderstorms on the satellites move from where 92L seems to be now and watch them cross Florida within a day, sometimes in a single afternoon.

The NWS 8:00 pm statement has no reference to how fast this is moving. I must guess it is moving very slow. Right?
