Odds of tropical system becoming depression or storm drop to 60 percent

Forecasters  say a tropical system in the open Atlantic still could become a depression as early as Wednesday, but on Wednesday afternoon dropped the odds of that happening from 70 percent to 60 percent.

The National Hurricane Center had said in its 8 a.m. tropical weather outlook that it expected conditions eventually to “become unfavorable for tropical cyclone formation.”

The 2 p.m. outlook said the low pressure system, now about 850 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands and some 3,000 miles from the southeastern United States, “still has
the potential to become a tropical depression before it moves west-northwestward into a drier and more stable air mass during the next day or two.”

The next update is set for 2 a.m. Thursday.
