Hurricane forecasters are keeping watch on two potential trouble spots in the tropics.
The closest to Florida is an area of disorganized cloudiness and showers over the Bahamas and adjacent Atlantic Ocean associated with a weak surface trough interacting with an upper-level low, according to the National Hurricane Center.
"Development, if any, of this system is expected to be very slow to occur while it moves generally westward at 5 to 10 mph during the next few days," the Hurricane Center said at 8 a.m. EDT.
The chance of development is 10 percent during the next 48 hours, and 20 percent during the next five days, according to the Hurricane Center.

Also being monitored is an area of showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure about 600 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.
"While tropical cyclone formation is not anticipated today, environmental conditions could become somewhat more favorable for development by later in the week while the low moves toward the west-northwest and northwest at about 15 mph over the open Atlantic," the Hurricane Center said.
The latest models have the system eventually turning towards the North Atlantic Ocean and away from land.
The chance of development is 20 percent during the next 48 hours, and 70 percent within the next five days.
