NHC says 70 percent chance of cyclone formation over central Atlantic

(Reuters) - A non-tropical low pressure system located over the central Atlantic a little more than 700 miles southwest of the Azores could strengthen into a cyclone over the next 48 hours, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Wednesday.

“A subtropical depression is likely to form later today (Wednesday) before the system becomes absorbed by a larger extratropical cyclone on Thursday,” the NHC added.
