(Reuters) - A broad area of low pressure over the northwest Caribbean Sea has an 80 percent chance of strengthening into a tropical cyclone by Saturday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Friday.

The Miami-based center said a tropical depression or tropical storm was likely to form later Friday or on Saturday, as the system moves northward over the Caribbean before turning to the northeast by late Saturday.
