AccuWeather meteorologists are monitoring the southwestern Atlantic Ocean for potential tropical development early this week.
The Atlantic basin has been quiet since Barry slammed onto the Louisiana coast as a hurricane on Saturday, July 13.
A concentrated batch of downpours and thunderstorms churning near the central Bahamas may attempt to brew into a more organized tropical system offshore of the southeastern United States in the coming days.
This feature will continue to track northwestward through the Bahamas before turning to the north and then northeast near Florida's southeastern coast through Tuesday.
"There is just a chance that this develops into a tropical depression before turning to the northeast and becoming incorporated with a stalling cold front along the southeastern coast of the U.S. during the middle of the week," according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Adam Douty.
Regardless, residents and visitors across the central and northwestern Bahamas will notice an increase in showers and thunderstorms on Monday.
The downpours can graze Miami and West Palm Beach on Monday night into early Tuesday, but more of the Southeast will turn stormy on Tuesday as the cold front sinks southward.
The front will make significant southward progress for July, sweeping cooler and less humid air across the Interstate-85 corridor and down to around I-10 in the lower Mississippi Valley.
However, some of the thunderstorms may turn severe across the Carolinas on Tuesday.
