TAMPA – Forecasters say a low pressure system about 130 miles south of Grand Cayman has a chance of developing into something stronger.

It is made up of a large area of disturbed weather over the central and western Caribbean Sea.

A hurricane hunter flight was planned for today, but has been rescheduled for tomorrow.

The National Hurricane Center says there is a medium chance – 40 percent – that the system could become a tropical storm within the next 48 hours.

Regardless of development, heavy rains from the system could cause flash flooding and mudslides in parts of Jamaica and Haiti.  The system is moving slowly to the north and northwest.

Elsewhere, the tropics are quiet.
