Regardless if it forms into a depression or tropical storm, it could bring rounds of heavy rain anywhere from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. The National Hurricane Center introduced this product a year ago to accommodate systems that develop and intensify near land. The system was moving west at about 12 miles per hour.

"The depression is becoming better organized, and it will most likely reach tropical storm status in the next several hours", the National Hurricane Center advisory stated.

If this were to occur, it could limit swell potential for the East Coast (it would be far away), although not all models are suggesting the system will finish a complete recurvature through the Atlantic. The WLOX First Alert Weather Team is keeping an eye on two areas. 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. For instance, the GFS forecast for Friday morning 9/7 is showing max winds of 71kts, while the Euro forecast is showing max winds of 41kts or a weak Tropical Storm.
