We could see the rare Pacific to Atlantic cross over with Tropical storm #Amanda. The new storm would get a new name from the Atlantic side if it reforms. Here's a map of cross over storms from Atlantic-Pacific or vice versa. pic.twitter.com/KXtgaWUmnG

Clouds are bubbling up across the Deep South, but so far our local radar across south Alabama & NW Florida remains quiet. Most spots locally are in the mid- to upper-80s.
