Tropical Storm Warnings have been issued for Cuba and the Bahamas as this system will move to the northeast through the weekend. In the next 48 hours, it has a 30 percent chance of development.

It formed in the Caribbean today north of Honduras.

The next name on the list of 2017 Atlantic Storm Names is 'Philippe'.

The National Hurricane Center has been tracking the disturbance, a trough of low pressure, since it developed in the Caribbean.

Heavy rain is possible in Southwest Florida mainly in the afternoon and evening Saturday, with isolated urban and rural flooding possible. Closer to the end of the week, however, the storm is expected to move away from Central America and into warmer waters more conducive to hurricane development.

The disturbance is expected to bring heavy rainfall to the Cayman Islands, Jamaica and Cuba during the next two days. "As this weekend's cold front passes over the Gulf Coast, we don't expect any tropical issues locally". By Saturday, the system could bring heavy rain across parts of south Florida and the Florida Keys.

The National Hurricane Center is giving it a 60 percent probability of becoming at least a tropical depression by Sunday morning.

Residents in the Cayman Islands and in central and western Cuba should monitor the development of the disturbance.

Epsilon was one of only five December hurricanes since the National Weather Service began recording them in 1885.

Small craft should consider remaining in port on Saturday and Saturday night as there will be the potential for unsafe squalls and sudden rough seas.

Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft said that maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour with higher gusts.
