NOAA NWS Satellite Image

A developing disturbance located between Bermuda and the Bahamas continues to organize.  Conditions favor farther development and there is high (90%) probability that a tropical or sub-tropical cyclone will form later today or Saturday as it moves towards the WNW.  Currently winds are estimated to be 20-30 knots with seas 8-11 feet within 180NM northeast of the center.
