The NHC has tagged the disturbance as Invest 90. According to FOX 13 Meteorologist Jim Weber, it's going to bring plenty of rain to the Bay Area this week.

On Tuesday, Tampa International Airport reported a significant number of delays because of the rainy weather.

As of 3 p.m., out of a total of 467 flights, there were 106 delays and two cancelations, according to the airport. To check flight status, click here.

Weber does not expect much development before it crosses Florida, since environmental conditions are expected to be unfavorable. However, some slow development is possible when Invest 90 is offshore the coast of the Carolinas.

The formation chance through the next seven days is only 20%, according to the NHC.
