Welcome to hurricane season. There's already a system developing in the Gulf

MIAMI -- June 1 is the start of the 2019 hurricane season and nature is giving us notice to prepare already.

Because something is out there.

A broad area over the southern Bay of Campeche is being monitored by the National Hurricane Center.

Preseason Andrea took some of the thunder out of a low pressure system developing Saturday by becoming this year's first-named storm, but this one could actually make landfall.

The low is currently delivering disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the Atlantic and is forecast to move westward to west-northwestward across the southern Bay of Campeche. This movement would have the low aiming toward the east coast of Mexico during the next few days, the center said in its tropical weather outlook.

A tropical depression could form in the next couple days -- the chance for development is 40% -- if it stays over the water before it potentially moves inland early next week.
