A tropical or subtropical storm is not completely out of the question as this low moves north toward the Florida Panhandle and then over land by Thursday.

Regardless, South Florida's forecast for heavy rainfall remains the same.

The National Hurricane Center is scheduled to release an update at 11 a.m. Monday.
