Tropical depression no threat to Florida, but rain still in forecast

Satellite image shows shows potential storm 'stronger than Ophelia' heading for Ireland

This cluster of storms is expected to make its way to the northwest through the Labor Day weekend bringing increased rain chances to the Sunshine State. The National Hurricane Center forecasts it will nearly certainly become a cyclone but will not affect the USVI. It is moving to the west-northwest at 13 miles per hour.

The tropical wave, situated near Hispaniola, is forecast to spread west to west-northwest but could fall apart as it encounters strong winds, according to the National Hurricane Center.

New Mexico Interstate 40 crash in Thoreau leaves 'multiple dead'
Investigators were unsure what cargo the truck was carrying, but Wilson said "there are a lot of vegetables" at the crash site. The crash shut down the westbound lanes of Interstate 40 near Thoreau near mile marker 50, police said.

Hurricane forecasters are keeping an eye on a wave in the Caribbean headed for the Gulf of Mexico while a faraway system nearing the Cape Verde Islands is expected to become a tropical depression later Friday. Beginning on Labor Day the storm will have traveled far enough to the north to begin running into dry air and stronger high altitude winds that will limit development.

A third tropical wave is forecast, by at least one model, to emerge from the African coast around Sept 7 or 8.

Finally, while the tropical wave now over the Lesser Antilles is showing some increase in shower and thundershower activity, immediate tropical development is extremely unlikely due to high levels of wind shear. Forecasters say strong upper-level winds will prevent the system from developing over the next two to three days, but conditions could become more favorable for development as the system reaches the eastern Gulf of Mexico early next week. 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.

This disturbance is expected to dump more rain for Florida into early next week.
