NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER – A new disturbance in the tropics has formed, and it actually has the chance to develop into a pre-Thanksgiving week tropical or subtropical system.

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a disturbance that is located east of the Leeward Islands.

Environmental conditions are expected to gradually become more conducive for development over the next several days.

The National Hurricane Center said showers activity has increased and become a little better organized today in association with a tropical wave located about 350 miles east-southeast of the Leeward Islands.

Environmental conditions are forecast to gradually become more conducive for development by Tuesday, and a tropical or subtropical cyclone is expected to form by the middle of the week.

The system will move westward to west-northwestward for the next few days, passing near or north of the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, and the southeastern Bahamas.

According to records from 1851 to 2015, there have been 1619 tropical storms and 991 hurricanes. Only 89 (5.4 %) of the tropical storms and 59 (5.9%) of the hurricanes developed in November.

Hurricane season officially ends Nov. 30.
