NHC monitoring tropical disturbance in the gulf

The National Hurricane Center is currently monitoring a tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico.

The system has less than a 30 percent chance of developing into a subtropical or tropical cyclone through the next 48 hours and 40 percent chance over the next five days, according to the NHC.

The system is made up of a large span of clouds, showers and thunderstorms extending from western Cuba across the SE Gulf of Mexico. The disturbance could develop into a stronger front as it moves across the gulf in the next few days.

Regardless of its strength, the system will still drench much of Florida with rain over the week.
