For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

An area of low pressure is expected to develop over the southwestern
Caribbean Sea by Thursday or Friday. Some gradual development will
be possible thereafter as the system moves slowly northwestward
toward Central America.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.

There is a no development expected over the next few days but regardless of formation, computer models keep this system away from South Florida.
If a storm does develop the next name will be Bill.

Tropical Storm Ana already formed in the mid Atlantic before hurricane season began on June 1st.
