The current path from a weather disturbance that will soon become a tropical depression may interrupt weekend plans in Sebastian, Florida.

The disturbance is from the remnants of Hurricane Agatha, a storm that fizzled out Wednesday. Still, an area of low pressure carrying the hurricane’s remnants will merge where it could drift eastward and make its way across the state and into Sebastian. 

If the track stays, we will get a lot of rain, which could impact the Blue Water Open Fishing Tournament at Capt. Hirams, and potentially the Pinewood Derby at the Pareidolia Brewing Company.

“Environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development, and this system is likely to become a tropical depression while it moves northeastward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea and southeastern Gulf of Mexico during the next couple of days,” NHC said in a statement.

It’s still too early to predict what this tropical depression will do, and it could change course.
