During the past four days, we have closely monitored a disturbance that is beginning to form from the remnants of Hurricane Agatha. There’s no threat of an actual hurricane for our area at this time.
The tracking of this potential tropical storm has been steady to the northeast as it moves closer to Florida. The disturbance could very well have an impact on this year’s Blue Open Fishing Tournament and the Pinewood Derby race in Sebastian.
