Low pressure system forms in Atlantic

National Hurricane Center says 70% chance of development in AtlanticLow pressure Atlantic

Just days ahead of the official June 1 start of hurricane season, the National Hurricane Center says that a low pressure system has formed in the Atlantic and has a 70 percent chance of developing over the next five days.  The update from the organizations says:

A low pressure area centered between Bermuda and the Bahamas is gradually becoming better defined while shower activity is increasing. Environmental conditions are expected to become more conducive for tropical or subtropical cyclone formation on Friday while the system moves west-northwestward or northwestward toward the southeastern United States coast. With the Memorial Day weekend approaching, all interests along the southeast coast from Georgia through North Carolina should monitor the progress of this low. An Air Force reconnaissance plane will be scheduled to investigate this low on Friday. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook on this disturbance will be issued by 3 PM EDT today. For additional information on this system, see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service. * Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent * Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent
