MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Leslie persists in the Atlantic and a Caribbean disturbance are what we'll focus on for today's Tropics check.

Hurricane Leslie is now moving north after stalling over the Central Atlantic. The Category 1 hurricane will continue to move northward, before shifting east in the open ocean. Leslie is still not expected to be a threat to land.

A Caribbean disturbance near Central America has a 30% chance of developing in the next five days. Though pressure in the region is low, the system is not organized and will likely struggle to do so for a bit because of strong upper level winds. At this point in time, the system does not look to pose a threat to Big Bend and South Georgia.

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 Chief Meteorologist Casanova Nurse has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.
