The potential cyclone is now packing 30 miles per hour winds and is moving west at 12 miles per hour.

Rain chances will range from 30 percent along the coast to 40-50 percent west of I-95.

"Environmental conditions are favorable for additional development, and a tropical depression or a tropical storm could form [at] any time today or Friday", the NHC forecast stated.

Summertime storms will continue to rain on Central Florida over the next several days, and Labor Day weekend could be impacted by tropical moisture that now sits near Puerto Rico.
