Tropical Depression 13 continues to move closer to the state of Florida with the cone of uncertainty enveloping the state. In the 5am up from the National Hurricane Center the disturbance moved a bit to the west with the center of the track just off the west coast of Florida.
Maximum sustained winds are at 35 miles per hour, just under the 39mph it takes to become a tropical storm. Impacts may begin to be felt in the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico Friday night and Saturday. The system could move over portions of the Greater Antilles this weekend. However, it could bring some rainfall and wind impacts to portions of Hispaniola, Cuba, the Bahamas, and Florida this weekend ands early next week.
We will continue to update activity in the tropics as it is made available by the National Hurricane Center.
