By Friday evening, Potential Tropical Cyclone Six is expected to continue strengthening into a Tropical Storm, which at this point would then become the sixth named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season and be given the name Florence.
Friday's forecast will be muggy, with some afternoon storms. This system is expected to move near the Florida Peninsula this weekend.
The tropical wave near the Cabo Verde islands has formed into a tropical depression and will likely become tropical storm Florence over the weekend.
The system had maximum sustained winds of 30 miles per hour and was moving west at 12 miles per hour.

Tropical Storm Warnings remain in effect for portions of the Cabo Verde Islands, where heavy rain and strong winds are expected through tomorrow.
The system is forecast to strengthen and possibly reach hurricane strength in several days.
