From the Miami Herald:

The tropical wave is some 1,100 miles from the oily disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. It could go anywhere from Florida to Mexico. It could wind up little more than rain and blustery wind. [...]
For now, it's uncertain whether the disorganized wave will disrupt BP operations. The National Hurricane Center gave it a 40 percent shot at strengthening into a tropical system by Friday.

Meanwhile, those robots down there at the bottom of the ocean keep alternately "capping" the leak and then crashing into and reopening it. It's like 2010: A Space Odyssey meets The Three Stooges.
