MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The disorganized disturbance in the southwestern Caribbean, north of the country of Panama, has not developed much of an improved circulation or storminess around the broad central low.  The system also hasn't moved much since Thursday.

In general, surrounding factors haven't changed drastically; the system remains over warm waters with light upper-level winds nearby.

Slow development is possible through the weekend, and limited movement is forecast.  Chances remain elevated, per the National Hurricane Center, for some formation into a tropical cyclone through the next three to five days.

There are no other disturbances that bear close monitoring around the tropical Atlantic basin.
