(Reuters) - A system over the central Atlantic several hundred miles northeast of the northern Leeward Islands has a 40 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Wednesday.

The system has become a little better organized since yesterday, and any additional gradual development is possible during the next several days while it moves slowly northwestward, the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
