WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5, UPDATE: The National Hurricane Center no longer expects this system to intensify. It will, however, be a heavy rainmaker for the Gulf Coast states.

The previous story is below.


Meteorologists are tracking a weather system that now has a 40 percent chance of developing into a tropical storm this week.

The system is located over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico as of Tuesday morning. The National Hurricane Center said it could become a tropical cyclone before moving inland Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

Regardless of development, the disturbance will likely produce heavy rainfall over portions of southern and eastern Mexico during the next few days.

As of Tuesday morning, there was no immediate threat to Florida.

If this system develops it will be given the name Barry and will be the second system to develop this year. Subtropical Storm Andrea developed southwest of Bermuda on May 20.
