The disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico is looking less likely to be a threat to Florida or any other state.
On Friday, the National Hurricane Center gave it a 20 percent chance of developing into a depression or storm over the next two days - down from 40 percent on Thursday.
Still, the area of low-pressure and thunderstorms could increase the chance of rain in Central and South Florida by early next week.
Meanwhile, what was once Hurricane Leslie has been downgraded to a tropical storm. At 11 p.m. on Friday, the system was 360 miles southeast of Bermuda, crawing north at 3 mph with sustained winds of 65 mph.
Leslie is projected to move east of Bermuda on Sunday - close enough to bring rain and wind to the British territory. It also is expected to re-strengthen into a hurricane.
After becoming the season’s first major hurricane on Thursday, Michael has weakened into a Category 2 system in the Central Atlantic. It poses no immediate threat to land.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
