I gave up a little too early on the Gulf system. It now looks like it could become a depression tonight or tomorrow. Mike A. picked up on it before I did.
Anyway, we'll be watching it closely. So much for the weekend prediction, but that's what makes the tropics interesting.
Alberto is amazing, for being so far up north and achieving category 3 status. This season has been really amazing so far even if nothing has made landfall yet.
