With hurricane season still two weeks away, an area of weak low pressure in the Gulf already has the eye of the National Hurricane Center although any significant development is unlikely.

An area of low pressure, packed with tropical moisture, has formed in the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

"It's not likely to become a named storm, but rain and some embedded thunderstorms will be in the forecast all week", News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. Showers and storms will be periodic, much like bands on a tropical system.

In Miami Beach, heavy rain and high tide combined to make a messy morning rush hour.

Over the weekend, the system pushed nasty weather across South Florida, generating heavy rain and tornado warnings in parts of Palm Beach, Hendry and Glades counties. North Carolina State believes between 7 and 11 will.

Cloud cover and steady showers are expected, National Weather Service Forecaster Stephen Shiveley said.

At this time, the heaviest rainfall of three to five inches or more is expected to remain well to our east over Florida. Rain and storm coverage daily will be around 60% and temperatures will be held to the lower 80s and even upper 70s.

Tropical disturbances in May are not uncommon.

Regardless of development or not, our forecast is unchanged with bountiful rainfall each day this week which could lead to flooding in some areas. From South Florida into eastern Virginia, there are pockets of abnormally dry and drought conditions.
