A tropical storm warning for the Bahamas. A tropical storm watch has been issued for the east coast of Florida.

The storm is expected to become a tropical storm sometime today or tomorrow according to the NHC. The storm will move over the Bahamas and may affect portions of the east coat of Florida. At this time the storm is not expected to make landfall in Florida.

The storm should turn north off the coast of Florida. Right now the forecast has the storm moving back out into the Atlantic.

Note: the forecast cone drawn by the NHC (National Hurricane Center) is representative of where the eye of the storm could go. Those outside of the cone could feel impacts by this storm as well.

Besides PTC Nine that will likely become a tropical storm. There are two more areas to watch off the coast of Africa. Which has a sort of good potential to develop.
