The Mexican government issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula from Tulum to Cabo Catoche.

The storm would be named Michael if it becomes more organized.

If sustained winds reach 39 miles per hour, the next name on the list of tropical storms is Michael.

The system is expected to become a tropical depression late Saturday or Sunday and become a tropical storm by Sunday night, the center said.

The disturbance continues to battle moderate to high wind shear. A separate area of persistent very heavy rainfall is expected along the Pacific coast of Central America and Mexico, including western Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, and the state of Chiapas in Mexico.

The system's most likely path called for a landfall Wednesday afternoon or evening along the Florida Panhandle as a tropical storm, the Hurricane Center, WWL-TV and Accuweather forecast tonight. That leaves a 300+ mile margin of error. Rain chances slowly return as the ridge that's kept us quiet and dry weakens.

We should have a better idea of development and track by Sunday into Monday morning. Until then, it is not a reason to panic in the Big Bend and South Georgia, but instead review storm plans and storm kits.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Leslie continues to churn in the mid-Atlantic - and even though it is no threat to land, it will impact the USA coast this weekend.

The cold front that moved through last night has stalled just to our south bringing us a good bit of cloud cover through today and a chance at some isolated showers.
