Don't shoot the messenger: Caribbean low with 60% chance of development

Wave

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a large area of disturbed weather over the lesser Antilles that could develop into something tropical in the southwestern Caribbean Sea.

"Upper-level winds are expected to become more conducive for development of this disturbance during the next couple of days, and a tropical depression could form over the weekend or early next week while the system moves westward across the central and western Caribbean Sea," said Senior Hurricane Specialist Richard Pasch.

The hurricane center says this weather system's chances of development are on the high end of medium -- 60 percent through Tuesday.
