Forecasters: Caribbean storm could become hurricane

  • Tropical wave could affect western Caribbean

We will closely monitor it as it becomes more organized.

After landfall, it is expected to weaken and quickly move northeast and away from North Florida and South Georgia.

The disturbance in the Caribbean is now a Tropical Depression.

Potential Tropical Cyclone Fourteen will become Tropical Storm Michael as it lifts north into the Gulf of Mexico early this week.

Showers, unrelated to this tropical system, will be on an isolated basis between this weekend and Tuesday.

Gov. Scott said, "With the National Hurricane Center forecasting Tropical Depression 14 to strengthen and impact Florida's Panhandle as a hurricane, families need to get prepared".

I'm learning a lot from here, it's really interesting how he works and I'm really looking forward to working for a long time with him.

Exactly how much rain is to be determined, based on how where this storm goes and what shape it's in after moving through the aforementioned area of wind shear. I think the most likely scenario is that a tropical storm, or weak hurricane, will form sometime Sunday or Monday.

Satellite-derived wind data indicate that the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 35 miles per hour (55 km/h) with higher gusts. The National Hurricane Center began issuing advisories at 4 PM EDT Saturday. The future track of the system remains highly uncertain. The low, called Invest 91-L for now, has a good chance of developing into our next named tropical system.

A third area of interest has formed in the eastern Atlantic near the Azores, but this system has a low chance of development.

You can also watch all of our newscasts - and - if the need arises, we will live stream the news 'round the clock.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Leslie is still over the open Atlantic Ocean, moving east away from the US coast.
