Tropical disturbance will bring increased rain chances closer to Labor Day

So far this season has produced two hurricanes, Beryl and Chris; two tropical storms, Debby and Ernesto; and one subtropical storm, Alberto.

The potential cyclone is now located east of the Cabo Verde Islands, according to the NHC, and is moving in a west/northwesterly direction.

The Met Éireann representative also mentioned that if such a storm does hit the North Atlantic, to the best of their knowledge, Ireland isn't likely to be affected.

Right now, current trends bring deeper, tropical moisture into the Gulf of Mexico for the Labor Day weekend as this tropical wave continues to move in from the southeast. The MJO is a global player in the tropics - an eastward moving grouping of clouds, showers and winds that traverses the planet and returns to its starting point in 30 to 60 days.

A disturbance is expected to affect Florida and the Gulf Coast this weekend into early next week, and Tropical Storm Florence is close to forming in the eastern Atlantic. First, whether or not this system continues to encounter less wind shear as it approaches the Gulf of Mexico.

We will report any weather that could impact our area, but don't see any need to address rain from Tropical Storm Florence unless it turns risky.

One-week rainfall forecast valid from Friday morning through next Friday morning. When it becomes a named storm, its name will be Florence.

As if on cue, the tropical Atlantic has cranked up a couple of tropical systems as the annual hurricane season moves into its peak period.

Of more concern to National Weather Service meteorologists in Miami is a tropical wave near Puerto Rico that could bring heavy rain this weekend to areas from the Treasure Coast to the Keys.

The name after Florence is Gordon.
