ATLANTA – A tropical depression is expected to form in the northwestern Caribbean Sea tonight or Sunday. Heavy rains are heading for western Cuba.
Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Katie Walls says the system could impact the southeast next week. Landfall is projected Wednesday along the Gulf Coast.
The system may produce rain in north Georgia mid-to-late week, but as far as timing and specific amounts, it’s too early to tell.
If the system becomes a tropical storm, it will be named Michael.
Severe Weather Team 2 is tracking to system LIVE on The Channel 2 Action News Nightbeat after the game.
