Forecasters eyeing tropical system headed into Gulf

Forecasters eyeing tropical system headed into Gulf

At this time, this storm is expected to remain over the central Atlantic Ocean.

As of 11:00 AM, we now have a potential tropical cyclone in the Atlantic Basin. While one forecast model (European model) was originally more aggressive in developing a potential tropical storm, it has now pulled back and is now suggesting something much weaker.

Forecasters expect the system will remain out at sea and will not threaten Florida.

One-week rainfall forecast valid from Friday morning through next Friday morning.

The National Hurricane Center is now predicting a 10 percent chance that this tropical wave develops into a tropical depression or tropical storm as it moves away from Tampa Bay toward the central Gulf Coast.

Ahead of the approaching storm, the government of the Cabo Verde Islands has issued a Tropical Storm Warning for the southern islands of Santiago, Fogo and Brava.

Smokey Robinson pays tribute to friend Aretha Franklin
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan took to the podium to announce a proposal to rename the city's waterfront Chene Park after Franklin. Smokey Robinson wasn't just a showbiz colleague, he was a childhood friend from back in the neighborhood, and so he remained.

The term "potential tropical cyclone" refers to a tropical disturbance that is not yet a tropical depression/storm but will likely bring watch-or-warning-worthy conditions to an area in the near future.

Florence would be the season's sixth named storm.

It's been a quiet hurricane season, and so far the threat of a major hurricane hitting Florida has been downgraded.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami has begun to monitor a tropical wave which is producing a large area of cloudiness and showers from Hispaniola eastward to the Leeward Islands and the adjacent waters.

Seven-day forecast from the ECMWF.

The name after Florence is Gordon. Gordon was introduced to the lists in 1994 (replacing 1988's Gilbert, which was retired).
