Little impact expected in Alabama from Gulf system

Forecasters say a tropical weather system in the Gulf of Mexico probably won't have much of an effect on Alabama.

The National Weather Service says a tropical depression located southwest of Key West, Florida, will mean bigger waves and increase the risk of rip currents on Alabama's beaches.

But the system is expected to make a turn to the northeast eventually. That means it will likely head toward the western coast of Florida rather than Alabama and the rest of the northern Gulf Coast.
