Tropical storm Emily dissipated into an area of low pressure Thursday, but forecasters said Friday that the low pressure area could turn into “…a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.” The National Hurricane Center’s Tropical Weather Outlook says the low pressure area is centered between Cuba and the Bahamas, and although it is disorganized right now, it could regenerate in the next two days (Saturday and Sunday).
Rip currents, lightning over the weekend
Meanwhile, the National Weather Service in Melbourne reports that there is “…an elevated risk of rip currents through the weekend,” for the east central Florida coast. They also warn of scattered lightning storms in the afternoon and evenings this weekend, which could produce cloud to ground lightning and gusty winds for east central Florida. Highs in the Daytona Beach area are expected to reach 93 Saturday and 94 on Sunday.
