Could There be a Hurricane in the Gulf Late Next Week?
Maybe, but it's still way too early to be sure.
It does look pretty certain that what is now tropical depression 5 should strengthen into Tropical Storm Ernesto in the next 24-48 hours. This storm system is still out in the Atlantic but looks to be tracking to the Caribbean Sea and could become a hurricane by Monday as it passes near Jamaica.
Once again, this is still subject to a lot of change, but at least it gives us something different to talk about when it comes to the weather.
