Hurricane experts will have all eyes on the northwestern corner of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico this week as an area of potential concern emerges. Here is what you need to know about what is going on in the tropics heading into the new week.

Tropical Weather Coming to Life Near Florida

Even in the absence of a named tropical feature coming to life this week, the associated moisture will track over Florida in the coming days, bringing the chance of flash flooding to the Sunshine State. There is also a likelihood of rough seas in this part of the basin as the system intensifies.

There have been no named systems yet this year for the Atlantic basin. The season officially kicked off on June 1. However, a recent series of weak disturbances have produced heavy rain and flash flooding in some of the northern islands across the Caribbean. Forecasters are warning that Florida could be next in line to see these rounds of tropical moisture.

In addition to significant moisture on tap for Florida, the forecast is calling for a surge of rain to move across some parts of Central America and the Greater Antilles over the next few days. These disturbances will pack enough of a punch to raise the risk of flash flooding and mudslides. Shipping interests in the region will also likely be impacted by these weather makers.
