Florida Is Officially In The Path Of A Forming Cyclone & This Weekend Looks Grim
The National Hurricane Center is currently tracking Potential Tropical Cyclone Nine, set to evolve into a full-blown Tropical Storm Isaias, as it forms in the Caribbean and has Florida right in its tracks.
While the system is particularly unstable due to an undefined center, it is still expected to bring tons of rain and wind to Florida by this Sunday morning.
Rainfall and wind hazards will extend far from the center of the system.
