A small area of low pressure, being referred to as Invest 97L, located about 400 miles west-southwest of Bermuda is producing some shower and thunderstorm activity.
This system’s low-level circulation has become better defined during the past several hours, and a tropical depression could form later today or Saturday evening while the system moves east-northeastward at about 15 mph.
