MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- There are no near-term concerns with tropical disturbances potentially becoming depressions or storms.

A stalled frontal system over the western Atlantic, off the Florida and Georgia coasts this weekend, has at least some slight chance of undergoing a transition into a tropical disturbance if enough thunderstorms cluster over the warmer Gulf Stream, and acquire a low-pressure circulation.  A couple of extended forecast guidance models hint at the slight chance of this occurring, however, certainty of this situation actually coming to fruition are rather small at this point.
