MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- For the first time in a while, the daily Tropics check actually focuses on the potential on a low pressure area in the open Atlantic.

While this system is not expected to reach the U.S. at all, it does have a 20% chance of developing into a tropical depression in the next two to five days.

It will likely pose no direct threat to land while it travels to the north and northeast.

You can catch the forecast on ABC 27 News starting at 5:00 each weekday morning, as well as ABC 27 News at Noon. First Alert Meteorologist Valerie Mills has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.
