The storm is expected to impact several parts of the country, including Florida.

The unsettled waters in the Gulf prompted the National Weather Service in Miami to issue a flood watch for South Florida through 8 p.m. Saturday.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected to continue through the day and into the night across most of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. The strongest storms could contain heavy rainfall, funnel clouds, and gusty winds in the afternoon and evening, the service said.
