UPDATE, 2:25 p.m.: As of 2 p.m., the National Hurricane Center is expecting no new tropical systems in the next five days.
However, the system that they were keeping an eye on earlier could still bring rain to our area.
ORIGINAL STORY: A clutch of thunderstorms between Cuba and Florida is being watched by the National Hurricane Center but was given a low chance of developing into a tropical system this morning.
Center forecasters said the area of disturbed weather extends across South Florida into the western Bahamas and is associated with a weak surface trough.
It has just a 10 percent chance of growing into something tropical, but meteorologists said regardless of development, South Florida should expect heavy rainfall through at least Friday.
National Weather Service forecasters said the system, combined with a moist southwest wind, will keep wet and cloudy weather over South Florida into the weekend.
While the morning shouldn’t be too wet, afternoon showers are expected to again overtake the area, spreading northeast from the Gulf of Mexico.
Palm Beach County will take the brunt of the showers, although thunderstorms are not expected to be widespread.
Today’s high temperatures should be in the upper 80s. Even with extensive cloud cover Wednesday, the high hit 90 degrees.
Overnight lows should reach into the mid-70s.
Chance of rain is 80 percent today and through the evening.
