"We have reason to believe the feature will start to drift north of west at some point this weekend. Depending on how much of a northward turn occurs later on in the western Atlantic, the system has a chance at developing," Kottlowski said.
The system already has a notable circulation and a weak surface low pressure area. At the very least there is the potential for a period of showers and thunderstorms in part of the Caribbean islands next week. Early in the week, the system will be near the Lesser Antilles, but will then push toward the Greater Antilles and/or the Bahamas later next week.
