Low Pressure System Has Winds Nearing TS Strength

Miami, Fla. (970 WFLA)-Showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad area of low pressure located about 175 miles north-northeast of the Turks and Caicos Islands have increased overnight. 

Although the system is producing wind gusts to near tropical-storm force, satellite imagery suggests that it lacks a well-defined center.  Upper-level winds are forecast to remain marginally conducive for some additional development during the next day or so while the system moves generally northward.

 Conditions are expected to become unfavorable for further development by Wednesday when the disturbance merges with a frontal system over the western Atlantic.
