Eye on the Tropics: Tropical Storm Rose forms to join Peter in the Atlantic

ORLANDO, Fla. — 5 p.m. Update:

Tropical Storm Rose has formed, and will stay well out in the Atlantic. There are no current threats to Florida.

Tropical Storm Peter continues to look as though it will stay off our shore as well.
