Possible Subtropical Storm forming within larger North Atlantic Gale

NOAA NHC Graphical Tropical Outlook

Showers associated with a low pressure system located several hundred miles
west of the westernmost Azores continue to show signs of organization. If the current organization of shower activity persists, advisories will likely be initiated on a tropical or subtropical storm later today or tonight. The system will likely move over colder waters on Thursday and further development is unlikely after that time. The low is producing gale-force winds and
these winds are forecast to continue today, regardless of development. For more information on this system, see High Seas
Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service. Source: NOAA NHC
