The low pressure system is well-defined, but the thunderstorm activity is not organized enough to categorize it as a tropical depression as of Monday, according to weather producer Alex Alecci.

Only a slight increase in the system's organization of thunderstorm activity would allow it to be categorized as a tropical depression.

The system is expected to move westward Monday night and then shift northward by Wednesday, possibly impacting the Carolina coast.

High temperatures in Orlando will be in the low and mid-90s into the Fourth of July weekend.

Most of Friday's rain will be in the afternoon.
