Tropical low over the Bahamas, heading toward Florida

A trough of low pressure located over the northwestern Bahamas is producing disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity. The system is heading toward Florida, threatening the state with locally heavy rains.

While little development is expected during the next couple of days as the system moves generally northwestward toward the Florida Peninsula, some slow development is possible as the disturbance turns northeastward and moves over the western Atlantic, NWS NHC said.

Regardless of its development, locally heavy rains are possible over portions of the Bahamas and the Florida Peninsula during the next couple of days.

Seas are currently reaching 2.4 m (8 feet) northeast of the Bahamas.
