Two other areas of interest are being tracked by the First Alert Forecast team.
An area of disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity is associated with an area of low pressure above the surface along Florida’s Atlantic coast. This storminess has a 10-percent-chance of developing into a tropical system before it moves ashore along Florida’s Space Coast later Friday or this weekend.

Rainfall will likely be enhanced across Florida, and possibly southern Georgia, Friday and Saturday.
Further east, Invest 99-L continues to track west-northwestward with a 20-percent-chance of tropical development within the next 48-hours; a 40-percent-chance within the next five days.
As of Friday morning’s forecast, it appears that whatever comes of Invest 99-L will stay well east of the eastern seaboard as a trough of low pressure picks it up and pushes it out to sea early next week.
