The National Hurricane Center is only predicting a tropical wave that could turn into a tropical storm within the next 48 hours, with an increase of chance of rain this coming week for Sebastian and Vero Beach. This movement now includes a newly-formed tropical depression off the African coast.

It will take about five to six days for the storm to make its way across the Atlantic.

National Hurricane Center forecasters predicted Thursday a swirl of thunderstorms hundreds of miles east-southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands would become Tropical Storm Florence before building to hurricane strength by Sunday. Outside of increasing rain chances for Florida, this system will not have a direct impact on Florida if it were to develop further into a tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico. Regardless, even though this tropical wave will bring a higher chance of rain through the beginning of next week it won't be all that different from the types of storms we have seen recently.

Khalil Mack trade rumors heating up
Now the Bears are expected to sign Mack to a huge contract this weekend. Oakland quarterback Derek Carr shared his feelings on Twitter.

The next named storm is likely to form off of the coast of Africa over the weekend.

"Forecasters have indicated that the system is now projected to continue on a west-northwest path for the next several days, taking it north of the Caribbean Islands", the DDM said.

Bottom line: Don't cancel those Labor Day weekend plans, keep the umbrella around and pay attention to future forecasts.

Friday's forecast will be muggy, with some afternoon storms. However, the hurricane center said when the system moves into the northern Gulf of Mexico early next week, conditions could become more favorable. Residents from Florida to the Upper Texas Coast should monitor the forecast through the Labor Day Weekend for updates.
