Gales in Atlantic Have 70% Chance of Becoming a System

Atlantic gales southwest of Bermuda may develop into a depression or subtropical storm in a day or two, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

The thunderstorms and gales that extend “several hundred miles” across the Atlantic have a 70 percent chance of becoming a more organized system as they move west today and turn northwest tomorrow, the Miami-based center said in a weather outlook before 7 p.m. East Coast time. The gales are 435 miles (700 kilometers) from Bermuda.

“Conditions appear conducive for this low to gradually acquire subtropical characteristics tonight or Tuesday,” the center said in the outlook.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June through November.
