(Reuters) - A low pressure area located about 1000 miles east of the Leeward Islands has become less organized and now has a 40 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next two days, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Wednesday.

The low is expected to move northward over the central Atlantic Ocean during the next few days, the NHC added.
