The disturbance looks to turn to the northeast later Wednesday, with landfall around the Big Bend of Florida later Thursday. Impacts in our area look minimal, but a few showers may skirt southeastern parts of the Wiregrass on Thursday.

TROPICAL UPDATE – Tropical Depression Nine in the Gulf of Mexico looks to turn to the north by early Wednesday, then to the northeast later in the day.

Elsewhere, we’re monitoring TD Eight and Hurricane Gaston in the Atlantic, both of which will be moving away from the United Sates later this week. We’re also monitoring a strong tropical wave off the coast of Africa that has a good chance to organize this week.
