Memorial Day in Destin
Will our Memorial Day weekend be a wet one? Storm forecasters say a tropical disturbance nearing the Gulf of Mexico has a 60-percent chance of developing into at least a tropical depression this week. If the system strengthens into a tropical storm, it would be the first of the 2018 season and would be named Alberto.
We are still going to make plans to celebrate! There are several patriotic things to do in Destin, FL this weekend, so rain, rain go away:
