(Reuters) - A low pressure system located over the western Caribbean Sea has 20 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Wednesday.

"Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for the system to become more organized later this week as it moves slowly northward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea," the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
