MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- A disturbance in the far southwestern Caribbean has gained little organization in the last 24 hours, but the upper winds remain light and water temperatures are adequately warm to allow continued development and strengthening to occur.  Movement of this system is nearly stationary.

The National Hurricane Center projects a high chance for this system to keep growing, and it may become a tropical depression by the end of the week.  Forecast modeling for this system is still in the early stages, but through the end of the week, it will likely remain in the southwest Caribbean, and tracking beyond the weekend is highly questionable.

Other than this, there are no other concerns in the tropical Atlantic basin.
