Track of Area of Low Pressure

An elongated area of low pressure over the northwestern Caribbean
Sea is producing disorganized cloudiness, showers and thunderstorms. There is no well-defined center of circulation, and upper-level winds are forecast to remain unfavorable for development.

This system has a low chance (near zero percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. However, locally heavy rainfall and flooding are possible over the Cayman Islands and portions of Cuba, southern Florida and the Bahamas.
