Third tropical system may form before official start of hurricane season

A disturbance several hundred miles southeast of Bermuda is producing a large areas of showers and thunderstorms, and has a 50-percent chance of tropical development.

The National Hurricane Center gives it a short window for additional development over the next day or two, and a subtropical depression may form tonight or on Saturday.

Either way, there won’t be any threat to land as this will move generally northward before being picked up in a trough coming off the East Coast of the U.S. Sunday into Monday.
