UEFA confirmed the names of the three finalists for the award that Real Madrid's Croatian player Luka Modric received a year ago. The victor will be revealed during the draw of the group stage of the Champions League on August 29 in Monaco .

It's moving generally westward at about 15 miles per hour and slow development is possible.

There are no watches or warnings in effect as of Saturday morning. The good news here is that this storm would be many, many days away from having any impact on land. The rain chance from this storm has decreased since Friday.

If the system continues to develop and reaches tropical storm status, it would be our 4th named storm of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season, named 'Dorian'.

Regardless of development, heavy rains are possible over the northwestern Bahamas and the southern and central Florida peninsula through the weekend.

Once the system moves off the east-central coast of Florida, however, environmental conditions work in its favor. High temps will be in the upper 80s.
