‘Medium chance’ of tropical cyclone

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico this week and advising that there “is a medium chance” — 30 percent — of a tropical cyclone developing.

The next system name would be Nicole.

The NHC is monitoring disorganized and thunderstorms over the northwestern Caribbean Sea associated with a broad area of low pressure.

Conditions appear favorable for the gradual development of a tropical system as the thunderstorms drift north, according to an advisory from the NHC.

Meanwhile, a small low-pressure system was located about 725 miles west-southwest of the Cape

Verde islands, also producing showers and thunderstorms.

The NHC said there was a 10 percent chance of the system becoming a tropical cyclone.
