Updated: 10:32 AM EDT Oct 12, 2020
The National Hurricane Center is monitoring an area in the tropics that could develop in the next few days.
Forecasters with the NHC said showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave located about 750 miles east of the Windward Islands continue to show signs of organization.
Slow development of this system is possible during the next day or so while it moves generally westward near 15 mph. Strong upper-level winds are expected to limit further development by midweek.
Forecasters say there is a 30% chance of development over the next 48 hours and a 30% chance of development in the next five days.
There are currently not any other areas in the tropics being monitored for possible development at this time.
The Atlantic Hurricane Season lasts until Nov. 30.
