1. Potential Tropical Cyclone Six. PTC-6 will likely turn into a tropical storm today or tonight. It will impact parts of the Caribbean including Puerto Rico today and the Dominican Republic tomorrow. If you have friends or family in Florida you should alert them that it may eventually hit Florida. I give it a yes or 100% at development.
