The remnants of former Tropical Storm Emily have regenerated into a tropical depression, the National Weather Service said Saturday afternoon.
But even though the system is reforming, South Florida will experience no greater impact than showers and thunderstorms already on the forecast, according to an NWS meteorologist.
"It's forecasted to move away from South Florida," said meteorologist Roberto Garcia. "We might see some showers and thunderstorms around the perephery of the system -- we already are, in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties -- but that's all we're probably going to see, and we were already expecting them."
Emily's leftovers are currently producing squalls and locally heavy rainfall in the northwestern Bahamas, but are expected to continue moving northeast, away from the Bahamas and the east coast of the United States.
The tropical depression is expected to move northeast into the open Atlantic on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.
