The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is monitoring a low-pressure system that could develop into a subtropical cyclone northwest of Bermuda.

According to the NHC’s 8 a.m. ET bulletin, the system was 800 miles east of Bermuda and has a 90% chance of forming in a cyclone within the next five days.

The system is expected to move north and northeast on Sunday afternoon.

NHC experts forecast the potential cyclone to develop hurricane force winds as it moves north.

The hurricane season in the Atlantic officially begins on June 1 and could be less intense than that of 2020 – a year in which historical records were broken with 30 named storms – but more active than normal, according to María Torres, a meteorologist at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) from the United States.
