TROPICAL UPDATE – Gaston is a strengthening storm in the Atlantic, but the system looks to remain safely out to sea. Meanwhile, we’re tracking a tropical near Puerto Rico. This disturbance will move towards the Bahamas late in the week when conditions will become favorable for development. The eventual track may be into the Eastern Gulf of Mexico by early next week, where further development is possible, or we may see a turn northward near Florida. I urge you to pay close attention to this system this week and next.
