A tropical wave will move across the Florida peninsula this weekend, enhancing rainfall and potentially washing out holiday plans for many Floridians.

July is usually a quiet month in the tropical Atlantic. Not this year. Two tropical storms have formed in the past four days, one briefly becoming a hurricane and the other expected to by late Monday. Neither system is an imminent or significant threat. Floridians, however, might want to keep a close eye on one.
