NHC sees 20 percent chance of system over Cuba becoming cyclone

(Reuters) - A large area of cloud and showers extending from the northwestern Caribbean sea across Cuba to the Bahamas has a 20 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone in 48 hours, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Thursday.

The system is likely to produce heavy rainfall over portions of Cuba, Florida in the United States, and the Bahamas over the next couple of days, the NHC said.
