NHC says 90 percent chance of cyclone near Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico

(Reuters) - A low pressure system located over the northwestern Caribbean Sea east of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, has a 90 percent chance of strengthening into a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Friday.

Environmental conditions are expected to become more conducive for development, and a subtropical or tropical depression or storm is likely to form by Saturday over the northwestern Caribbean Sea or the southeastern Gulf of Mexico, the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
