System to bring rain to Florida this weekend

TAMPA (FOX 13) -

A low-pressure system festering in the Gulf should start moving toward Florida, with the National Hurricane Center saying it still has a 40 percent chance of becoming a tropical storm.

Fox 13 meteorologist Jim Weber said Thursday morning that the system hadn't developed any better overnight, and it's drifting southward into unfavorable conditions for development.

Weber said he expects the system to sit in the Gulf over the next day or so before a cold front pushes it toward northwestern Florida.

"Once that happens, conditions won't be favorable for development," he said. "It's going to kind of merge along this front and bring a lot of rain for the state of Florida."

It's also likely to bring some rain into the Bay area's forecast for the weekend.

If the system did develop into a named storm, it would be Nadine. Meanwhile, the season's first Category 3 Hurricane, Michael, and Hurricane Leslie continue to churn out in the Atlantic, posing no threat to the U.S.
