Share

If it becomes a named storm, it would be named Florence. It is moving to the west at 12 miles per hour.

Tropical Storm Norman strengthened slightly overnight and is forecast to become a hurricane today.

"Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and the disturbance is expected to become a tropical storm during the next day or so, " the hurricane center said. A potential tropical cyclone also allows watches and warnings to be issued. However, forecasters say that strong upper-level winds will likely prevent any significant development during the next several days.
