WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The National Hurricane Center is monitoring an area of low pressure over the Bahamas.
According to the NHC, it has a 20 percent chance of development over the next five days.
As the moisture pushes north into the next few days, it is expected to bring us rain, which could be heavier at times.
Earlier this month, Colorado State researchers predicted a slightly below average hurricane season.
Hurricane season begins June 1.
