A potential tropical cyclone is looking to wreak havoc on Central America in the next few days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 miles per hour with higher gusts.

As of Saturday evening, the latest forecast track shows additional strengthening out over the Gulf of Mexico before making landfall mid-week as a high end tropical storm. By Wednesday, however, environmental conditions are expected to become unfavorable for any significant development to occur. The low, called Invest 91-L for now, has a good chance of developing into our next named tropical system.

It urged people in the Yucatan Penninsula, western Cuba and the northern Gulf Coast to keep on the system.

Alabama, Mississippi and the Florida panhandled will get the worst of the wind and rain, Masters said. The model has the storm passing through SC sometime between Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon as a tropical storm before weakening back to a depression.

We're talking temperatures that could be in the 60s and low 70s during the day and 40s at night.
