  • Tropical wave could affect western Caribbean

The storm would be named Michael if it becomes more organized. Additional strengthening is expected and is anticipated to become a hurricane before making landfall along the FL panhandle on Wednesday.

The disturbance in the Caribbean is now a Tropical Depression.

NHC forecasters say that this general motion with some increase in forward speed is expected over the next few days.

If it forms as anticipated, it could bring wet weather to South Florida and have a direct impact somewhere on the northern Gulf coast, including the Panhandle.

Eyes on on a developing system on the Gulf of Mexico. A small craft advisory will begin Sunday night and last through early Wednesday.

South and southeast winds from the storm threatened to push water north into Terrebonne and Lafourche's bayous and marshes.

Tropical Depression 14 could become Hurricane Michael by Tuesday night or Wednesday.

Right now, sustained winds are at 35 miles per hour, and the storms i moving slowly to the north.

The National Hurricane Center said late Friday that conditions now limiting development will change in the coming days, becoming more conducive for slow development. Heavy rainfall should hit the western portions of Cuba as it moves north. Western Cuba could see isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches, the center said.

There is high uncertainty about the possible intensity of the system, but it is likely that the complex will drag tropical moisture across Florida.

Already, the broad area of low pressure is large and capable of producing torrential rains.
