The National Hurricane Center is monitoring the potential for a non-tropical low to develop over the central Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Azores.
The low is expected to form over the next 24 to 48 hours.
Some gradual development of this system is possible while it moves slowly westward, and a tropical or subtropical depression could form by the middle of the coming week.
After that time, upper-level winds will become unfavorable.
Over the next five days, there is a 50 percent chance of formation.
The next named storm will be Melissa. So far this year there have been twelve named storms.
