Press Release:

    Good Afternoon Everyone,

    Our office is currently monitoring a tropical system that has the potential to develop into a Tropical Storm / weak Hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico over the next 24 to 48 hours. Recent model runs indicate that this system will cross over the state of Florida as we approach the weekend, and enter the Atlantic late Saturday / early Sunday. From this point models vary, with some indicating that it will continue to move out to sea, towards the Bahamas and away from our area, while others suggest it will travel just off our state's coastline late Sunday and / or Monday.

    Please see the email below and attached briefing from the National Weather Service for additional information. We will continue to pass along information as we receive it, and encourage everyone to monitor this system over the coming days.
