NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – We will be watching a disturbance over the Northwest Caribbean and Bahamas as it is forecast to develop into a non-tropical area of low pressure mid-week and then lift northwards east of Florida.

While it moves northwards, it may acquire some subtropical characteristics, and the National Hurricane Center currently has a low, or 30 percent chance of development through 5 days.

Whether or not it becomes subtropical, the current track of the low will keep significant impacts east of East Central Florida and over the local Atlantic.

We will likely see breezy conditions Tuesday and Wednesday with a few rain squalls and locally heavy downpours.

The main concern at the moment will be for rough surf along area beaches through late week along with building seas, leading to hazardous conditions for small craft and the possibility for beach erosion.
