MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- A mass of cloudiness and moisture in the far southwestern Caribbean Sea is encountering light upper winds and little movement.  A slight chance for some slow intensification exists with this system over the next few days.  The disturbance will meander or drift slowly to the west, closer to Central America.  As a result, it's highly unlikely that this wave will pose any immediate threats to the northern Gulf region.  A late-week cold front should also keep any threat levels minimized for the local region.

Moisture in the Florida Straits will encounter faster upper-level winds and the same advancing cold front from the west, so it is not expected to develop into a tropical low.

There are no other points of interest in the tropical Atlantic basin at this time.
