Storm off coast of Florida has 70 percent chance of becoming tropical depression

A storm off the coast of Florida has a 70% chance of becoming a tropical depression, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The storm could bring rain to the North Carolina coast on Monday and Tuesday but is otherwise not expected to cause damage in NC.

The Hurricane Center says the weak area of low pressure is supposed to move up the coast of Florida and then go out to sea.

Severe weather is expected in the Triad Friday evening that is unrelated to the storm off the coast of Florida.
