Current guidance for Tuesday – Thursday is to Tropical Depression 13 and 14, which could become tropical storms very soon. According to the National Weather Service, “a tropical system could impact Central Alabama for the period Tuesday through Thursday. It is too early to forecast potential impacts at this time.” Currently, Tropical Depression 13 is approaching the northern Leeward Islands. Also, Tropical Depression 14 is approaching the Honduras and Nicaragua border coast. I will have a more detailed report for you on Tropical Depression 13 and 14 shortly.
