Irma Continues Westward Trek

Irma continued to make her trek in the Atlantic Thursday.

The tropical storm is expected to be a hurricane soon and could be a major category 3 hurricane by the weekend.

Irma is still days away from land and it is too early to say whether Irma will be a threat to the U.S.

The National Hurricane Center is also watching for a possible low pressure system popping up in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by the weekend.

Forecasters say development, if any, will be slow over the next five days, but it could mean some showers and thunderstorms as we head back to work after the Labor Day holiday. "However, any rainfall forecast is uncertain at this time range, and it is too soon to determine any specific impacts," read the tropical weather outlook Thursday morning.
