This low is expected to be nearly stationary over cold waters through Thursday, but it could become a subtropical or tropical cyclone while it moves southward over marginally warmer waters on Friday and Saturday. Strong upper-level winds are expected to develop over the system during the weekend, which would likely limit its development.
