Low east of Northern Leeward Islands could become tropical storm on Monday: NHC

(Reuters) - A low pressure system, located about 800 miles east-northeast of the Northern Leeward Islands, has a 90 percent chance of becoming a tropical storm in the next 48 hours, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

This disturbance is already producing winds to gale force, and if the current development trend continues, a tropical storm could form later on Monday, the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
