ORLANDO, Fla. — Fast-moving showers with some embedded thunderstorms will continue through the weekend.

This is all courtesy of the low-pressure system located just east of South Florida.

This system will continue to travel west and it is expected to be over the eastern Gulf of Mexico on Saturday.

Once over the Gulf of Mexico, this system has a much better chance of becoming a tropical system. The next name on the list is Sally.

The weekend won’t be a complete washout, but there will be several rounds of showers and storms moving from east to west. Highs will be between 88 and 90 degrees for Saturday and Sunday. Lows will stay in the upper 70s.

Tropical Storm Paulette will get close to Bermuda Monday. This system is expected to stay away from Florida, but its force will travel far enough to reach the east coast of Florida in the form of large swells and also bring a high risk for rip currents.
