A vigorous tropical wave is located over the tropical atlantic about 1100 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands.

Environmental conditions appear favorable for some slow development of this system during the next couple of days.

There is a low chance (20 percent) of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves westward or west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph.
