However, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) reports that showers and thunderstorms have changed little in organization during the past several hours in association with an area of low pressure located about 300 miles south-southwest of the Azores.

This system still has the potential to become a subtropical cyclone during the next couple of days before upper-level winds become unfavorable.

Regardless of development, this low is expected to produce winds to near gale force during the next day or two while it moves slowly northeastward.

This tropical disturbance is being referred to as Invest 96L, and here’s what the computer models are showing

* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent
