The National Hurricane Center is watching an area of showers and storms over the southwestern Caribbean Sea.
"This activity is associated with a tropical wave over northwestern Venezuela and a surface trough located just east of Nicaragua interacting with a large upper-level trough. Little development of this area of disturbed weather is expected over the next few days due to interaction with Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula," read the Monday afternoon tropical weather outlook. "However, environmental conditions could become somewhat more conducive for some limited development when the system moves into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week."
The NHC puts formation chances at 20% over the next five days.
