NHC: System along east coast has 40 percent chance of development

(WVUE) - A system off the east coast looks very well defined on satellite.

A low pressure area just east on North Carolina has a low chance of becoming a tropical cyclone. The National Hurricane Center gives it a 40 percent chance for development in the next few days.

Regardless, it is quickly moving toward the northeast and will remain in open water.
