BOCA RATON, FL ( — The National Hurricane Center early Tuesday morning says the system we’ve been tracking for several days is now one to watch. It has a 70 percent chance of developing into a tropical depression within the the next few days. What happens after that remains unclear — it could dissipate, it could further grow.

From the National Hurricane Center:

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. Thunderstorm activity associated with a large low pressure system 
located more than 800 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands 
has increased and become a little better organized over the past 
several hours. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive 
for development to occur, and a tropical depression is likely to 
form during the next day or so while the disturbance moves westward 
to west-northwestward at around 15 mph across the tropical Atlantic. 
Conditions are forecast to become less conducive for development by 
the end of the week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.
