Tropical Storm Harvey could regroup but stay clear of Florida

The remnants of former Tropical Storm Harvey could rebound while two other systems brewing in the Atlantic Ocean are unlikely to develop into severe weather.

According to the National Hurricane Center, a cluster of showers and thunderstorms left over from Harvey, which dropped heavy rain last week to islands in the eastern Caribbean Sea, has a 50 to 60 percent chance this week of once again developing into a tropical storm. It will likely move across the Caribbean toward Central America, staying clear of Florida.

Two other systems have only 10 percent chances of strengthening into more severe tropical weather, the center said Sunday morning.

Those odds could increase to 20 percent mid-week for a group of storms and showers about 200 miles north of Puerto Rico. If that happens, the storm's likely trajectory is toward the Bahamas and Florida.

The third storm, about 1,000 miles east of the West Indies, is caught in an area of dry air, making conditions unfavorable for development.
