In the tropics, Leslie continues to linger in the Atlantic, but is only a threat to shipping interest. However, Leslie will also contribute to a high rip-current threat.

Tropical Storm Michael bears watching as it approaches and enters the Gulf of Mexico. Advisories are being issued for the Florida Panhandle as Michael has the potential to become a Category 2 hurricane.  Landfall is possible around Apalachicola late Wednesday.
