A disturbance forming to the west of Yucatan peninsula has a low chance of forming into a tropical system in the next 5 days. However, we still could see some development as we go through the week.
The National Hurricane Center gives this area a 20% chance for formation within the next 5 days as it moves into the Gulf of Mexico. If it were to form into a named storm, it would be named Alberto. Named storm or no named storm, this system will bring more tropical moisture to the Gulf Coast, including Florida.

Atlantic Hurricane Season officially begins June 1st but storms can form outside the season.
Historically, storms have formed in the month of May but it’s not typical.
Even in June, we look towards landmasses for the formation of storms. That’s where the water is warmest to aid in the development.
