Medium Chance of Development; Likely Stays Offshore

A non-tropical area of low pressure in the Atlantic has a medium chance of developing into a sub-tropical system in the next five days.  However, it is forecast to remain offshore and have little impact on the state.  As of Tuesday afternoon, a disorganized area of showers and a few thunderstorms were located from Cuba through the Bahamas.  The system could gradually strengthen and acquire subtropical characteristics as it treks northeast and away from the peninsula Thursday or Friday. At the present time, no direct or significant impacts from this possible development are expected across the state. However, increasing easterly winds will produce higher swells and create high surf at times for the Atlantic beaches through the end of the week.  An elevated risk of rip currents will also exist at area beaches, along with the occasional passing shower associated with some outer bands from the system.  By Saturday, conditions should improve for much of the state and seasonably warm, dry weather will prevail.
