  • Tropical wave could affect western Caribbean

"Some strengthening is forecast during the next several days, and the depression is expected to become a tropical storm later today", according to an advisory at 8 a.m. As you head back to work on Tuesday, it will be temperature whiplash as we're back to the summer-like feel; but this time for a little longer period of time. Isolated to scattered showers will be possible each afternoon as tropical moisture streams into the region.

After day 3, the trough is expected to cause the cyclone to turn northeastward and accelerate further across the southeastern United States.

Hurricane Leslie is now moving north after stalling over the Central Atlantic.

- We're well past the peak of hurricane season, but October always has the potential to present tropical issues, especially along the Gulf Coast.

Maximum sustained winds were at 35 miles per hour at 5 a.m. and the depression was moving north-northwest at 3 miles per hour.




The system is expected to become a tropical depression late Saturday or Sunday and become a tropical storm by Sunday night, the center said.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Leslie continues to churn in the mid-Atlantic - and even though it is no threat to land, it will impact the USA coast this weekend. An intense cold front is set to move in during the Tuesday/Wednesday timeframe! High temperatures will drop into the low 80s on Friday, with lows potentially dipping into the upper 50s Thursday night.

If the system takes that path, southeast Louisiana can expect 1-3 inches of rain and higher-than-normal-tides Monday through Wednesday, Cranford said.
