As of early Monday, the National Hurricane Center gave it a 80 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next two days.
Whether it will bring rain and wind to Florida, it’s too soon to say. The current forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a low chance of rain through the workweek.
The system could produce heavy rains over Jamaica, Cuba and Hispaniola over the next few days and trigger dangerous mudslides in mountainous areas.
The National Hurricane Center also is monitoring a disturbance in the Central Atlantic, saying it has a medium chance to develop. That system is unlikely to threaten Florida.
