The remnants of what was Tropical Storm Erika are north of the northern coast of Cuba.  The trough of low pressure is moving W/NW at about 20-25 MPH.  That motion is expected to continue for the next 24 hours.  Southern and Central Florida could get heavy rainfall from the remnants beginning on Sunday.  Rainfall amounts could top four inches. Flash flooding is expected for much of the Florida penisula.

There is a 40% chance of re-development of the system in the eastern Gulf of Mexico.  The impacts are expected to stay mostly the east of our viewing area for the duration, but we will continue to closely monitor the situation.

Children's football helmet safety

Researchers are testing a new technology to help identify concussions in football players.
92 high school football players in Indiana were given helmets outfitted with brain sensors.
   
The helmets are being worn during practices, and during next week's all-star game in Indianapolis.
A spokesperson for the maker of the helmet---Brain-Sentry---says the device is another step in keeping the players safe.
   
"Our device will simply indicate via a red light that the player has taken that significant hit. A coach or trainer can pull that player to the sideline, administer their standard concussion protocol and determined if that player should be removed from play or safe to return to play."

There is currently no standard for the helmets worn by kids playing football.
