"Michael" Could be in Our Forecast by End of Week

Tropical wave could affect western Caribbean

Tonight and Tomorrow: Spotty showers and storms will be tapering off until 10 PM, with clouds breaking shortly after and through the overnight period.

By Wednesday, however, environmental conditions are expected to become unfavorable for any significant development to occur. A trough of low pressure is expected to help steer it northeast after landfall.
