    By: Irene Sans


    The weather will be nice this weekend across Central Florida. A high-pressure system in place will inhibit the chance for significant storms. The winds will be from the east, increasing the chance for rip currents. Make sure to swim near a lifeguard if you go in the water.

    The tropics

    With less than two weeks to go until the official start of the hurricane season on June 1, there is an area of low pressure that the National Hurricane Center has given a 30% chance for development within the next five days.

    The disturbance is located southwest of Bermuda. It is forecast to move away from Florida and the United States, staying over water. It does not represent a threat to Florida.
