Tropical Storm Lisa formed in the Caribbean on Monday morning.
The storm is south of Jamaica and has winds of 40 mph.
Chief meteorologist Tom Terry said the storm is forecast to strengthen over the next couple of days, eventually becoming a hurricane before it makes landfall in Belize.
As of 2 p.m., Lisa is still tracking west toward Belize and northern Honduras, Terry said.
He said Lisa could be a hurricane by Wednesday.
Lisa is not a threat to Florida.

The system is expected to become a Category 1 hurricane over the northwestern Caribbean.
Strong winds and a belt of high pressure should keep the potential storm away from the U.S., according to AccuWeather forecasters.
The first couple weeks of November could see more storms developing in the Caribbean.
