In the Tropics:
The disturbance in the Gulf we were tracking yesterday was able to briefly produce winds of 40mph. That means it picked up the name Mindy. Mindy is now a tropical depression moving over Georgia toward the Atlantic. This is not a threat to the local area.
The northern portion of a tropical wave over the western Caribbean Sea is forecast to emerge over the southern Bay of Campeche on Saturday. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive to
support some gradual development of the system before it moves into mainland Mexico early next week.
A strong tropical wave is expected to emerge off the west coast of Africa on Saturday. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development thereafter, and a tropical depression could form by early next week as it moves west-northwestward over the far eastern Atlantic near the Cabo Verde Islands.
