(WTXL) — A cluster of disorganized showers and storms has the potential form into the Atlantic's next named storm while nearing the Bahamas and Florida, according to the National Hurricane Center.
The NHC says disorganized cloudiness and showers is located a few hundred miles north and northeast of the northern Leeward Islands.
They say strong upper-level winds are expected to prevent the development of this system during the next few days while it moves west-northwestward to the north of the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico.
However, the NHC says that environmental conditions could become more favorable for development when the disturbance moves near the Bahamas and Florida late this week.
Right now, the disturbance has a near zero percent chance of developing over the next two days and a 20 percent chance of developing over the next five days.
We'll continue to monitor this development as well as its potential impacts to our local area.
