Part of Florida Included in Tropical Storm Warning

A tropical storm warning is up for part of Florida as a low pressure system in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico gets stronger and organizes Tuesday.

Forecasters say the system will likely become Tropical Storm Cindy in coming hours, and continue its northwesterly trek toward landfall along the Louisiana and Texas border.

Despite the center coming ashore so far west, extreme western Florida is included in the tropical storm warning that’s been issued for several gulf coast states.

Places like Pensacola could get ten to fifteen inches of rain and tornadoes associated with the tropical system.

Meantime, Tropical Storm Bret continues to move due west in the southern Caribbean Sea, and is expected to begin weakening in the next day or so.
