Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Depression Rose and the Remnants of Peter are not a concern for Louisiana.
Tropical Depression Eighteen is a concern off of the west African coast. It is projected to become a hurricane Saturday and a major hurricane by Monday. It is going to head towards the Caribbean or more likely track just north of the Leeward Islands. From there, we will have to watch it closely to see where it goes.
