UPDATE 7/23/19 at 2PM
Tropical Depression #3 has dissipated off the coast of Florida. The National Hurricane Center has issued the last advisory on this system.

UPDATE 7/23/19 AM

Tropical depression number 3 remains off the east coast of Florida with maximum sustained wind at 35 mph. Almost all of the rain associated with this is offshore with just a few light rain areas along the east coast. The storm has taken a turn to the north at this latest advisory and is expected to move northeastward later today. It is unlikely that this system will become a tropical storm.

UPDATE 7/22/19 PM 11 PM:

Thunderstorms near the center have dissipated with only some lingering showers and storms just offshore of Palm Beach and Broward Co. The storm is expected to turn north and eventually northeast. The system is expected to dissipate by Tuesday night.

UPDATE 7/22/19 PM II:

NHC issues the first advisories for newly developmed Tropical Depression # 3 near Andros Island in the Bahamas. The depression will lift northward through Tuesday and further development is not likely due to dry air and unfavorable upper level wind shear associated with a deepening trough of low pressure over the central and eastern US.

UPDATE 7/22/19 PM:

The tropical wave near the Bahamas has improved in its structure through the day Monday and now has a 60% chance of development in 2-5 days. The system could become a tropical depression later today or tomorrow with a turn northward away from the area as a cold front and trough sags closer to the area.

UPDATE 7/22/19 AM:

NHC bumps the chances for development up to 30% in 2-5 days, but the likelihood that this develops into anything tropical is unlikely as it encounters stronger upper level wind shear and a cold front dropping into the area from the north. This front will deflect the storm out into the Atlantic away from Florida.

In the wake of Hurricane Barry, we are watching a new tropical wave near the Bahamas that has a low chance for development over the next 5 days. Slow development is possible with this system as it approaches South Florida by mid-week. Right now, it is not looking like a significant threat to the area, with an increase in showers and storms along with breezy conditions for parts of South Florida through mid-week. The National Hurricane Center currently has the system designated as Invest 94L. A cold front sagging into the region from the north will likely deflect the system north, then northeastward along the Atlantic coast between Florida and the Carolinas.
