The system, located about 750 miles east of the Windward Islands and moving west at about 15 mph, had no defined center early Monday but was expected to encounter conditions that could help it intensify.

The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a 40 to 50 percent chance of developing into a named system over the next two to five days and it could bear down on the Lesser Antilles by the end of the week.
