By BBN Staff:The National Hurricane Center (NHC) continues to monitor a weather disturbance that has become better organized.
This morning, the NHC updated the weather disturbance to a 90 percent chance of forming into a tropical storm over the next 48 hours.
Satellite images indicate that the low pressure system located over the northwestern Caribbean Sea just east of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico has become better defined overnight, and thunderstorm activity has also increased and become better organized.
Environmental conditions are forecasted to steadily 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.
An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the weather disturbance this afternoon.
This system could also bring tropical-storm-force winds and storm surge to portions of the northern Gulf Coast by late this weekend or early next week.
The weather system could become Tropical Storm Alberto by Saturday or Sunday.
BBN will bring you online developments as it becomes available.
