Meanwhile, the tropics are fairly quiet for now.
"Hurricane Lorenzo is gone, and a broad area of low pressure over the northwestern Caribbean Sea continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms," Bridges said.
The hurricane center is giving the low pressure system a 20% chance of development over the next five days.
"It will live close to the Yucatán Peninsula and eventually move closer to South Texas," Bridges said.
