Tropical disturbance near Gulf of Mexico likely to develop further, experts say

The National Hurricane Center is predicting it will gain strength and become Tropical Storm Michael by tonight, and should head into the Gulf of Mexico late Monday.

The disturbance will bring torrential rains to part of Central America, the Yucatan peninsula and western Cuba into next week.

6 p.m. UPDATE: The National Hurricane Center has issued an advisory for Potential Tropical Cyclone Fourteen, including a tropical storm warning for Cuba. The depression is moving near the north near 3 miles per hour.

An EA spokesperson said on Thursday it was also closely monitoring the situation. "I see Ronaldo calm, he is ready to play". Ronaldo is being sued by Kathryn Mayorga, who says he raped her in the penthouse suite of a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.


The storm system is expected to lift northward into the Gulf of Mexico. Isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches are possible in western Cuba. The low could gradually acquire subtropical or tropical characteristics over the next few days while the system moves generally eastward and remains over warm waters.

It was too early to tell whether the storm would impact Terrebonne, Lafourche or Louisiana, forecasters said. Leslie is now located about 455 miles east of Bermuda. "By Thursday afternoon, the storm should be moving away from us".

Leslie continues to produce rip currents and large swells across the United States east coast, including Florida.
