Tropical Storm Michael Forms, Forecasted to Become Hurricane By Wednesday

Tropical wave could affect western Caribbean

It may achieve hurricane status with wind speeds of 74 miles per hour or higher before it makes landfall on Wednesday.

This cyclone is expected to be in the Gulf of Mexico Monday, organizing into a tropical storm. While it could strengthen to a tropical storm, it will encounter wind shear.

According to the National Hurricane Center's 7 a.m. advisory, TD 14 was about 100 miles east-northeast of Chetumal on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula or about 240 miles south-southwest of Cuba's western tip.

The NHC says that heavy rains are expected to spread over Western Cuba on Sunday.

Once it reaches land, Michael is forecast to weaken into a tropical storm when it passes through the East Coast, including the NY metro area by Friday morning. It is important to note that all of the northern Gulf Coast from southeast MS to the western Florida Panhandle remains within the forecast cone.

Chicago Officer Jason Van Dyke Found Guilty in Murder of LaQuan McDonald
He had been charged with first degree-murder, a charge that requires a finding that the shooting was unnecessary and unreasonable. Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly stated that Van Dyke was handcuffed as he was led from the courtroom.

Today's forecast for Palm Beach County includes a 20 to 30 percent chance of rain with highs in the upper 80s.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect for the storm, and it is headed toward open waters in the central and eastern Atlantic.

Leslie continues to produce rip currents and large swells across the U.S. east coast, including Florida. Some model solutions show the storm becoming a major hurricane, however, I think that the mid and upper-level winds will be too strong for that to occur. These large swells will continue on Sunday. The minimum central pressure is 987 mb.

"Our state understands how serious tropical weather is and how devastating any hurricane or tropical storm can be", Governor Scott tweeted. Severe storms and possible tornadoes will be possible over parts of the state along Michael's path.

PTC 14 is forecast to organize and strengthen into a tropical storm by Monday afternoon.
