An area of showers and thunderstorms moving through the southwest Bahamas has the potential to become a tropical feature in the coming days. The National Hurricane Center says there is a 70 percent chance the showers and storms could organize into a tropical depression over the weekend as it moves to the northwest.
This looks like it could bring needed rain to parts of the southeast United States Saturday and Sunday. From this far out it is likely that this system will remain east of Texas.
Since this is the statistical peak of the hurricane season, it is no surprise that there are additional areas of showers and storms stretching all the way east to Africa that will be monitored for potential future development.
