Tropics heating up; Georgia could get soaked Sunday

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

The tropics appear to be heating up as we head out of is traditionally the busiest time in the Atlantic Hurricane Season.

About 1,200 miles east of Bermuda is Tropical Storm Jerry. This is the 10th names storm in the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season, but doesn't appear to be in a hurry to anywhere fast. The storm is heading west at about a mile per hour with maximum surface sustained winds of around 40 miles person as of early Wednesday morning.

Closer to Georgia, we could find the 11th named storm soon developing and heading towards the state with what could be more than enough rain. The disorganized system is just off the Yucatan Peninsula, but it has a chance to develop over the next 24 hours. If that happens, it could become Tropical Storm Karen by the end of the week. Forecast tracks have moving into metro Atlanta and north Georgia by the second half the weekend dumping rain.
