An Atlantic weather system's development into a cyclone stalled Tuesday, according to the National Hurricane Center. But researchers still believe the area of low pressure, called Invest 94L, has a high probability of organizing in the next few days. The likelihood of cyclone activity within the next 48 hours is estimated at 70 percent, forecasters said, and 80 percent within the next five days.
The storm, 800 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, is moving west or west-northwest at speeds between 10 and 15 mph, forecasters said. It's far too early to say if the storm will threaten land.
