Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure located over the central tropical Atlantic about 800 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands have changed little in organization through the day.
However, environmental conditions are conducive for further development, and a tropical depression or tropical storm is expected to form over the next day or so while the low moves toward the west-northwest at 15 to 20 mph across the central tropical Atlantic.
Additional strengthening, possibly to a hurricane, is likely later this week while the system moves over western portions of the tropical Atlantic, near or to the northeast of the northern Leeward Islands.
The system has a 100-percent chance at becoming a tropical system in the next week and 90-percent chance in the next 48 hours.
Should this system develop into a Tropical Storm as expected it would be named ‘Lee’.
