A subtropical depression in the central Atlantic is expected to strengthen with winds approaching hurricane force by tomorrow. Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center predict that Leslie will become a large and powerful post-tropical cyclone. The system is around eleven-hundred miles west of the Azores and moving slowly eastward. She isn’t expected to affect the U.S.
Meanwhile, a broad area of low pressure located about 300 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, continues to produce showers and thunderstorms on its north side and could become a tropical depression later today while it moves northwestward. This system will affect some areas hit by Hurricane Florence, but not with major amounts of rain.
