BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The weather system that wasn’t much of anything just a day ago is now given a 40 percent chance of development, according to meteorologists at the National Hurricane Center.

The system could become a Tropical Depression within a few days. The next named storm will be Fred.

This is the mid-afternoon update from the National Hurricane Center:

An area of low pressure located off of the southeastern United
States coastline continues to produce a large region of disorganized
showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear
marginally conducive for additional development and a tropical
depression could form over the next couple of days as the
system meanders over the Gulf Stream, just offshore of the
southeastern United States.
