Update on TD19 (future Sally), Paulette, and Invest 95L (future Teddy):

The major development today has been that Invest 96L near Florida has become Tropical Depression Nineteen, and it will soon become Tropical Storm Sally. It has a chance to reach hurricane strength when it nears the central to eastern Gulf Coast states. It will be moving very slowly when it nears the coast, so there is tremendous rainfall potential with some areas possibly receiving 8 to 12 inches of rain with locally higher amounts possible. Check out the projected rainfall amounts from the Euro and Weather Prediction Center in the 3rd and 4th images.

Tropical Storm Paulette is still expected to be a strong hurricane when it impacts Bermuda Sunday night into Monday. The National Hurricane is forecasting 110 mph maximum sustained winds (Category 2), but it's still possible that it could be a Category 3 major hurricane.

Invest 95L, which will likely become Tropical Storm Teddy on Sunday or Monday, will bear watching, but the latest trend in the models is for it to curve north before getting to the Leeward Islands. So, that is good news, at least for now. The last image shows the Euro ensembles for the next 12 days.
