Satellite image shows shows potential storm 'stronger than Ophelia' heading for Ireland

Nearly the entire country will be seeing rain at some point this holiday weekend with the exception being the West Coast and the northern Rockies. Expect increased rain chances with best chances along the coast in the morning, then into our inland areas early afternoon and then along the I-75 corridor in the late afternoon and early evening.

Another area to watch, a tropical wave is moving through the Greater Antilles.

A tropical wave in the Caribbean has a 40 percent chance of developing into a tropical system, according to the National Hurricane Center. Rainfall totals are around two inches so far and more rain is expected.

We are still seeing the GFS bring this up to hurricane strength while the Euro tops this out at tropical storm strength. However, the weather service doesnt believe the tropical wave poses a threat to the region because its so disorganized.

The storm will bring tropical storm conditions to the Cape Verde Islands as it moves over the open Atlantic.

Gillum scores victory despite being outspent in Democratic Primary
Trump welcomed DeSantis's victory in Florida and criticized Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, the Florida capital. They also are among the most ardent Trump defenders, something DeSantis does frequently on Fox News.

This disturbance is expected to move west across the Northern Gulf of Mexico through the early to middle part of the upcoming week.

A third tropical wave is forecast, by at least one model, to emerge from the African coast around Sept 7 or 8. Strong upper-level winds will keep it from organizing into a tropical system before it arrives in Florida, but it may strengthen once it passes over the state and into the Gulf of Mexico.

Potential tropical cyclone number six is being monitored by the Hurricane Center and will most likely upgrade it to Tropical Storm Florence over the weekend.

Forecasters also will be watching for the storm-inciting Madden-Julian Oscillation, or MJO, in the coming weeks as it makes its way into the Atlantic.
