An area of disturbed weather, labeled Invest 90L by the National Hurricane Center, will move out of the Caribbean and into the Gulf of Mexico later this week.
The National Hurricane Center is giving the system a 40 percent chance for development in the next five days.
An area of low pressure may form and approach somewhere along the Gulf Coast by the weekend. Heavy rain is the primary threat, and the exact track of this low will determine where the heaviest rain will fall.
Bottom line is that this Memorial Day weekend could be stormy for folks heading to the beaches or those staying home.
