(Reuters) - A low pressure system over the southwestern Caribbean Sea has a high 90 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone and could intensify into a tropical depression later on Wednesday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in its latest advisory.

"The low should move slowly northwestward across or near the eastern portions of Nicaragua and Honduras on Thursday, move into the northwestern Caribbean Sea by Friday, and emerge over the southern Gulf of Mexico by Saturday," the NHC added.
