Tropical Storm Hermine May Not Make A Caribbean Appearance After All

Rain was also expected to spread into south Florida over the weekend and continue into early next week. Still a 60 percent chance by the National Hurricane Center of that happening.

Fred Johnson, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Melbourne, said the key in Central Florida is for everyone to just keep watching the tropical wave next week.

But the loosely organized storms probably won't have enough time to reorganize over the slightly more favorable conditions around Florida before drifting out into the Gulf.

Invest 99L, the unnamed tropical mess rumbling through the Caribbean, continues its uncertain journey toward the Gulf of Mexico.

The tropical wave swirling off the coast of Florida slowed overnight and remained disorganized, hurricane forecasters said early Friday.

Upper-level winds are expected to remain unfavorable for significant development during the next couple of days, as the system moves west-northwest at about 10 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center said.

"Heavy rains, with the potential to cause flash floods and mud slides, are likely over Hispaniola and eastern and central Cuba during the next couple of days", said the advisory.

Oil giant BP said on Friday it has started securing facilities and evacuating non-essential personnel from its drilling rigs and platforms in U.S. Gulf of Mexico as a precaution against a storm threat. The hurricane center said that Gaston could even become a major hurricane (Category 3 or above). The exact movement and strength of this high pressure ridge in the next few days will be the biggest influence on 99L's path.

Meanwhile in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Lester is moving westward away from land. Impacts in our area are not expected to be significant.

A third area of disturbed weather was also being watched by the hurricane center on Friday - and this one was already in the Gulf. "And those are two enemies of a tropical cyclone trying to develop", the Miami Herald quoted National Hurricane Center spokesman Dennis Feltgen as saying.
