Gaston is not a threat to the US. It will stay in the central Atlantic. The “invest,” or investigation, remains just as a tropical disturbance, moving toward the Bahamas. By the weekend, it could become a tropical depression, but the track and future strength are uncertain. We’ll watch it very closely over the weekend, as whatever it may become could move into the Gulf closer to Sunday. Even if it gets into the Gulf, the potential path is wide open to all scenarios. It may also move right up the Florida peninsula or stay on the east side of Florida, in the Atlantic.
