NHC says 50 percent chance of cyclone off southern Windward Islands
(Reuters) - An area of low pressure located about 1,000 miles east of the southern Windward Islands now has a 50 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Wednesday.
Environmental conditions are marginally conducive for the development of this system into a tropical depression during the next couple of days, the Miami based weather-forecaster said.
"Interests in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of this system as it moves west-northwestward near 15 miles per hour," the NHC said.
