BOCA RATON, FL ( — Expect rain throughout the day and into Tuesday as a system off South Florida reminds everyone that hurricane season continues. The system has a small — just 20 percent — chance of development over the next five days, but it’s the track that stands out. Forecasters say the system will move south towards Cuba, then move north again possibly into the Gulf of Mexico where “upper level winds are expected to become marginally conducive for development.”

The Yellow X is being watched for forecasters at the National Hurricane Center. There is a small chance of development as it heads south, then north.

With Alpha and Beta already on the books, Gamma becomes the next storm assuming the hurricane center follows the order of the Greek Alphabet.

Here’s the latest:
