BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – National Hurricane Center has increased the chances for a tropical depression in the Atlantic to 70-percent in the next five days.

The latest 8 p.m. report by NHC shows the low pressure system is located around 1,100 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and moving to the west-northwest at 10-15 mph.

Currently, the disturbance (red X) is producing some rain showers and thunderstorm activity.

The storm will continue to produce heavy rainfall, but does not pose a threat to become a tropical depression, according to the National Hurricane Center.
