NHC says 40 percent chance of cyclone near Cape Verde islands

(Reuters) - A low pressure system centered a couple of hundred miles south of the Cape Verde islands in the Atlantic Ocean, has a 40 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Tuesday.

A tropical depression is expected to form by the end of the week while the system moves west-northwestward across the tropical Atlantic Ocean, the Miami-based weather forecaster added.
