That tropical wave got the attention of the NHC

A tropical wave located over the north-central Caribbean Sea is
producing a large area of cloudiness and thunderstorms extending
from Hispaniola northeastward across the northeastern Caribbean Sea
and adjacent Atlantic waters. This activity is forecast to spread
westward to west-northwestward, but strong upper-level winds are
expected to prevent any significant development of this system
during the next several days. Environmental conditions could become
more conducive when the system reaches the eastern Gulf of Mexico
early next week. Regardless of development, this system could
produce enhanced rainfall across portions of Hispaniola, the
Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos, and Florida into early next week.

* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent

.NEAR TERM [Through Today]...

Other than a strong shower that dumped 1.1" of rain here at the
office, there has not been much shower and thunderstorm activity.
There is still a gradient in moisture from along the coast inland
with higher moisture along the coast. The main forecast update was
to adjust PoPs to align with the moisture a little more. It will
take some day time heating for convective temps in the low 90s to
be reached. Isolated convection should become more established
early this afternoon and a again mainly Houston southward.
