the southeastern Gulf of Mexico through tonight, across the
southern and central portions of the Florida Peninsula on Saturday,
and then over the southwestern Atlantic north of the northwestern
Bahamas Saturday afternoon through Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
The system is expected to develop a well-defined center and become
a tropical storm later today, and some slight strengthening is
possible while it approaches Florida today and tonight. Additional
strengthening is possible after the system moves east of Florida
over the western Atlantic late Saturday and Sunday.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent.

At least the first storm didn't happen in May this year. It's interesting that this already has TS force winds near its center, yet still isn't organized enough to be called a TS.

Makes me wonder how strong one of these can get before becoming tropical by definition.
