TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A system tracked for several days, now less than 1,000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles, remains somewhat disorganized Wednesday, but also retains a high chance to become a tropical depression in the next day or so. Upper-level winds surrounding the system are still considerably strong, delaying its development efforts. Nonetheless, as it moves to the west over the next few days, it will remain a decent distance from land and won't be an immediate threat to the Caribbean islands.

Moisture in the far southern Gulf is being spun up by a vigorous upper low and is not forecast to develop tropically through the weekend.
