FOX 4 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

UPDATE 9/10/2020 11 AM:

Our thinking hasn't changed regarding the future of Rene. It will remain in the Atlantic with a turn toward the north later in the period. Some strengthening is expected later in the period, possibly by the weekend to hurricane status. Right now winds are around 50 mph and steady strengthening is expected through Saturday.

UPDATE 9/7/2020 5 PM:

Tropical Storm Rene has formed and willl likely strengthen through the week. Fortunately, it will remain out to sea.

FOX 4 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

UPDATE 9/7/2020 11 AM:

Tropical Depression 18 is forecast to bring tropical storm force winds and heavy rain to the Cabo Verde Islands later today. The system could become a tropical storm by tonight. The forecast track remains the same, and there is still no threat to Southwest Florida.

UPDATE 9/7/2020 8AM:

Tropical Depression 18 formed off of the African coast Monday morning. Between the warm Atlantic water and low wind shear, the system is expected to intensify quickly. It could become a tropical storm within the next day or two. This system is following closely behind Tropical Depression 17 and should follow in it's track. It's continuing on a WNW track and could shift slightly north as a ridge of high pressure weakens and guides it through the Atlantic. At this time, there is no threat to Southwest Florida.
