Low pressure area in Eastern Atlantic could develop over next five days

Forecasters were tracking an area of low pressure southwest of the Cape Verde Islands Wednesday.

Though it was just a concentration of thunderstorms Wednesday morning, National Hurricane Center forecasters noted those storms increased since Tuesday and gave the system a 30 percent chance of tropical cyclone development over the next two days.

Upper-level winds were predicted to slow the storm's development through Friday, but the chance of development was still predicted to increase to 40 percent over five days.
