Shower and thunderstorm activity has become better organized in association with the remnant low of Tropical Storm Gaston (09L), located about 700 miles east of the Leeward Islands.

Environmental conditions appear conducive for tropical cyclone formation, and the low could redevelop into a tropical depression at any time today as it moves westward near 15 mph.

There is a high chance (80 percent) of this system becoming a tropical cyclone again during the next 48 hours.

Interests in the leeward islands should monitor the progress of this system.  Warnings will likely be required for some of these islands if advisories are re-initiated.
