TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Storm Team 8 is tracking a weak tropical disturbance east of the Central Bahamas moving towards Florida.
The National Hurricane Center gives this area of low pressure a 30% chance of developing into a tropical depression over the next two days.
This weak cluster of disorganized showers and thunderstorms is unlikely to develop into a tropical cyclone. The disturbance is located a few hundred miles east of the Central Bahamas and is moving west-northwestward at about 15 miles per hour.
“It’s still expected to enhance rain chances across Florida Tuesday and Wednesday before heading quickly out to sea,” said Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Leigh Spann.
Regardless of development, a trough of low pressure across the southeastern United States will help push this tropical disturbance out to sea during the middle of the workweek.
