Caribbean Development?

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is keeping its eyes on an area of the Caribbean that could sprout a low pressure system in the days ahead. Nothing is there now but models are hinting at something developing that may drop plenty of rain across parts of the Yucatan Peninsula,  Central America, and maybe Western Cuba.

The "Worry Meter" is very low on this for South Florida & the Bahamas, but it is worthy of watching since it will be sitting over an area extremely favorable for storms to form.

In the month of June, the Caribbean Sea & Gulf of Mexico are the primary spots for emerging tropical activity. Typical tracks are to the Gulf States and Florida.

NHC says:
A broad area of low pressure is expected to form over the
northwestern Caribbean Sea and adjacent land areas by the weekend.
Some gradual development of this system is possible thereafter while
it moves slowly northwestward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

Other Activity:
There are a handful of tropical waves moving East to West in the Atlantic Basin. While it may look impressive, most are proving much needed rain through the region. This is average and nothing to worry about. In the Pacific, the remnants of Tropical Storm "Calvin" is still dumping rain across Southern Mexico.

What to do now:
Keeping checking back over the next few days for further developments.
