ORLANDO, Fla. — The National Hurricane Center is highlighting an area that will try to develop this week in the Caribbean.
Meteorologist Brian Shields said he is closely monitoring this disturbance but believes it will stay to the south and east of Florida.
However, Shields said there’s an unrelated disturbance that could develop right off our coast later this week.
A system in Texas will head our way, bringing rain and storms on Thursday.
As it pulls off our coast, it could spin up into a tropical storm, and then move away, Shields said.
Regardless, Central Florida can expect rain, storms and gusty winds on Thursday.
If it does spin up, beach erosion would be more of an issue on Thursday and Friday.
