This disturbance is expected to track west-northwest or northwest, according to the hurricane center.
The disturbance’s path is still uncertain, according to Accuweather. If the system grows to more than “a batch of showers and thunderstorms,” it could curve north and approach the Leeward Islands.
The center has given this disturbance a 20 percent chance of developing into a tropical depression in the next 48 hours and a 30 percent chance of developing in the next five days.
