The National Hurricane center has their eye on 3 systems in the tropics.

A non-tropical low is located between Bermuda and the Azores. This system has a 50% chance to become a tropical depression or storm as it heads slowly toward the West.

Showers and storms are located off the East Coast of the US. A non-tropical low is likely to form with some chance of it obtaining sub-tropical characteristics in the days ahead. Most likely this system will merge with a frontal boundary and stay well East of the US East coast.

A trough of low pressure is located near the Florida straits. This system has a 10% chance of developing as it heads East of Florida during the mid to late week. This same system has copious amounts of moisture associated with it. This in conjunction with a slow moving frontal boundary moving down the state will deliver us much needed rainfall. Rain chances 70-80% from today through Thursday.

Rainfall totals of 1-3" are likely including torrential downpours in places. Strong wind gusts along with occasional lightining are likely as well.
