The system is currently in very strong vertical shear, so any tropical development will need to wait for the shear to subside, which is forecast to happen in the next couple of days. In the meantime, the disturbance (or perhaps subtropical storm) will continue to bring strong and gusty winds to southeastern Florida and the westernmost Bahamas. What track guidance there is suggests a continued motion toward the northeast, taking it further offshore. Should this get upgraded to a subtropical or tropical storm, the next name on the list is Beryl.
