We are watching an area of low pressure located in the central Atlantic Ocean.
While the low has become better organized over the past few hours, it still does not possess the necessary characteristics to be classified as a tropical storm.
At this time the storm is expected to become a very weak tropical storm.
It is expected to track northward and could bring some rainy and windy weather to Newfoundland and Nova Scotia by mid-next week. Should it reach Canadian water's it will likely have already transitioned to just a remnant low.
The Atlantic hurricane season doesn't start until June 1st, however, so far this year there have already been two named storms. Arthur and Bertha have formed so far this year. The next named storm will be Cristobal.
