The National Hurricane Center’s 7 am CDT update shows a 90 percent chance that a low-pressure system will develop this week as environmental conditions are expected to become more favorable for development.
Per NHC, shower activity associated with a broad area of low pressure located a little more than 1000 miles east of the Windward Islands has become a little less organized since last night.
However, NHC forecasters say environmental conditions are still expected to become more favorable for development in a day or two and a tropical depression or tropical storm will likely form within the next couple of days.
The system is forecast by NHC to move westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph and could begin to affect portions of the Lesser Antilles on Wednesday or Wednesday night.
Computer models indicate the storm may eventually turn back toward the Atlantic Ocean
