It’s not June yet, but we’re keeping an eye on a couple of areas in the tropics.  The first is a low that’s developed a few hundred miles east-northeast of Bermuda.  This feature is expected to become a subtropical depression or subtropical storm on Friday or Saturday before encountering hostile conditions that will weaken it.  It is not a threat to South Florida.  The second feature we’re watching is a disorganized area of showers in the western Gulf of Mexico.  This feature has a low chance of developing before it reaches land on Friday night.  But it will bring heavy rain to Lousiana and portions of Texas during the next few days.
