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.
