There’s a tropical wave brewing in the Bahamas, but chances of it moving into Florida as a storm aren’t too high.
A Monday morning update from the National Hurricane Center says there’s a 30 percent chance the Caribbean showers will become the third named tropical storm of 2019.
“Environmental conditions are expected to be marginally conducive for development during the next couple of days while the trough moves west-northwestward to northwestward at around 15 mph,” according to a report from the center.
The rain and thunderstorms currently in the northwest Bahamas and the surrounding area are associated with a low pressure region, meteorologists stated.
There’s little chance a storm will form after two days due to strong upper-level winds. But, if one does, it will be named Chantal.
