MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- In the tropical Atlantic basin, there are waves of moisture, some of which generated by the upper-level wind pattern. One of these, a few hundred miles southeast of Bermuda, has low-end chances to develop into a subtropical low through the end of this week. The system is relatively weak, and not expected to have a huge impact on the local or regional weather pattern.

Outside of the Atlantic basin, Hurricane Willa is set to clash with the western mainland coast of Mexico late Tuesday as a major hurricane. Its remnant moisture will travel across northern Mexico and the Rio Grande Valley, then will combine with swift upper-level winds across the northern Gulf region to spread clouds and rain chances across the northern Gulf and some coastal locations Thursday and Friday as a non-tropical disturbance.
