HOLT, Fla., Sept. 27, 2017–The National Hurricane Center is watching an area of disturbed weather associated with a trough of low pressure located over the northwestern Caribbean Sea.

This system is forecast to move slowly north-northwest across Cuba and the Florida Straits during the next day or so.

Some development of this system is possible when it moves near the Florida peninsula or the northwestern Bahamas Friday or Saturday before upper-level winds become less favorable early next week.

This system is likely to produce locally heavy rainfall over portions of Cuba, southern Florida, the Florida Keys and the Bahamas during the next several days.

This area has a 20 percent chance of further development through the next five days.
