It’s not hurricane season yet, but an approaching disturbance is soaking South Florida

Blame your slick and rain-soaked commute to work or school Thursday on the tropics.

For the first time in 2019 the National Hurricane Center is saying there’s a chance of a tropical cyclone developing in the Atlantic Ocean.

The area of rain and showers over the northwestern Bahamas and very close to Florida has been given a low chance of strengthening into a tropical depression — 20 percent over the next five days.

And while it’s aiming for Florida, the potential strengthening is only expected after it moves away from the Sunshine State and north into the Atlantic Ocean off the southeastern U.S.
