Storm may become tropical depression in coming days, hurricane center says

Tropical wave could affect western Caribbean

Heavier showers are forecast for western Cuba (3 to 7 inches), as well as the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize and Northern Honduras (2 to 4 inches).

Forecasters said Tropical Storm Michael is likely to form Sunday night and could reach the Gulf coast by Wednesday. While not now a significant threat to the United States, there is growing interest in what happens to this potential development when it moves into the Gulf of Mexico early next week. Western Cuba could see isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches, the center said.

The storm system is expected to lift northward into the Gulf of Mexico.

There is still a lot of uncertainty with the strength and timing with this system.

Alabama, Mississippi and the Florida panhandled will get the worst of the wind and rain, Masters said. This will increase the rain chances across the entire peninsula for the middle of the upcoming week. Leslie is now located about 455 miles east of Bermuda.

New Dwarf planet spotted at a far distance of the system
Researchers believe that studying objects similar to 2015 TG387 will lead to the discovery of Planet X in the future. A paper with the full details of the discovery has also been submitted to The Astronomical Journal .

For SWFL, the center of the storm will likely stay well to our west, meaning we'll avoid direct impacts.

Hurricane Leslie, located in the north-central Atlantic, posed no threat to Cayman.

Keep updated this weekend and check back in with us. Formation chance within the next five days is high at 90 percent.

A tropical storm watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, in this case within the next 36 hours.

Hurricane season started June 1 and ends November 30.
