Satellite imagery indicates that an area of low pressure has formed from the tropical wave centered about 700 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.
The low-level circulation has become better defined since yesterday, with increasing organization in the shower and thunderstorm activity.
Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for further development, and this system is expected to become a tropical depression or a tropical storm in a day or two.
Additional strengthening is likely late this week while the system moves westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph over the central and western portions of the tropical Atlantic.
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’.
