Emily may very possibly dissipate over Florida. The circulation looks very weak inland near Tampa early this afternoon.

Emily is now a tropical depression SE of Tampa. It may actually dissipate over Florida during the next 12 hours. If this is the case, it will not follow the official NHC track where it restrengthens east of the Carolinas. We should know what shape it is in by Tuesday morning.
