Another area of low pressure is just off the southeast coast of Florida and has shown little movement today. This feature should drift to the north or northwest, which will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to Florida over the next several days. This developing low will combine with a strong ridge of high pressure across the northeastern United States, and the result will be an increase of northeast winds, high surf and rip currents along the east coast of Florida and the Southeast coast over the next few days. This feature also bears watching for potential tropical development. http://hurricane.accuweather.com/hurricane/regions.asp?site=atl&partner= Also, Hurricane Maria and the new Tropical Storm Nate are not expected to threaten the U.S.
