Satellite images, surface observations and radar data from Cuba indicate the remnant low pressure system of former Tropical Storm Emily (05L) has remained nearly stationary about midway between the
central Bahamas and the north-central coast of Cuba.

Thunderstorm activity has increased and become a little better organized near the surface center, and upper-level winds are gradually becoming more conducive for a tropical depression to form during the next day or so. This system has a high chance (70 percent) of regenerating into a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves toward the northwest at 10 mph.

Regardless of development, this disturbance will produce gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall over portions of the central and northwestern Bahamas Friday night and Saturday
