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.

Dentist say brushing your teeth is still the best way to protect your cavities and from gum disease.
