Saturday, June 1st marked the debut of the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
There aren't any hurricanes out there at this very moment, but forecasters are watching a system for potential development.
A disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico is getting organized, but very slowly.
As of early Monday morning, the National Hurricane Center says there's only a 20% chance of development within the next 48 hours.
However, forecasters are watching it closely. Whether it becomes a hurricane or not, parts of Florida could receive a soaking later in the week from the storm, if current computer projections verify.
