ORLANDO, Fla. – Tuesday marks the peak of hurricane season, and although one system is expected to bring rain to Florida, there aren’t any immediate threats.

A surface trough interacting with an upper-level low is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms near the north coast of Hispaniola.

Little if any development of this disturbance is expected during the next few days while it moves west-northwest near the coast of the Bahamas and the Florida peninsula.

“It will likely just be a rainmaker for the end of the week,” News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. “The hurricane center is giving it a zero chance of development for the next two days and a 30% chance of development over the next five days.”
