It is expected to become more organized as an area of low pressure forms over the northwestern Caribbean Sea late in the day on Friday and into Saturday.
The National Hurricane Center said there is 48% chance of development in the next 48 hours and 70% chance of development over the next five days.
The development of this area of low pressure could lead to the formation of a tropical depression or tropical storm over weekend as the system moves northwest near the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.

The Hurricane Center is also eyeing a second system just east of the Lesser Antilles. Forecasters currently give it a 20% chance of development in the next five days.
