System in tropics has potential to develop

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

We're keeping our eyes to the tropics for the next few days as an area of low pressure just east of the Lesser Antilles and Puerto Rico has the potential to develop.

The system has winds of 30mph and is moving northwest at 14mph.  It still has a way to go before becoming a Tropical Storm, however.

As the storm moves into very warm water, it stands a good chance of getting stronger over the next few days.

It's still a bit too soon to say for certain where the storm will end up; it's something we'll have a better handle on over the next 24 – 36 hours.

We'll keep you posted!
