As Tropical Storm Don moves toward Texas, the effect on West Central Florida will be minimal.
Today will be partly sunny with a 40 percent chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms late this morning and afternoon. Chance of rain diminishes tonight and tomorrow.
A tropical storm watch has been extended as Don moves across the Gulf of Mexico toward southeastern Texas, where it's expected to make landfall Friday.
A tropical storm watch is in effect from the mouth of the Rio Grande northward to west of San Luis Pass.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Don's maximum sustained winds early Thursday are near 40 mph (65 kph) with some strengthening possible.
The storm is centered about 635 miles (1,025 kilometers) east-southeast of Corpus Christi, Texas, and is moving west-northwest near 10 mph (17 kph).
