MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- A subtropical depression -- that is, a closed low system with a blend of warm and cool air conditions with strongest winds farther away from the low's center -- formed south of Bermuda in the Atlantic Ocean.  Friday afternoon, rain bands were organizing around the central low, and some improved organization was detected.  Some strengthening is possible through the weekend, but upper-level winds will disrupt its intensification efforts early next week, and the system will weaken thereafter.  If the depression strengthens into a subtropical or tropical storm, it will be named Fay.

Two other waves of disturbed weather to the southeast of the subtropical depression have low to medium chances to develop further through early next week.
