In the tropical Atlantic, the low near Bermuda has a medium chance of becoming a depression during the next day or so, when it will encounter conditions hostile to further development.  And a trough of low pressure is expected to form well east of the southeastern Bahamas in a few days.  This feature is expected to have a low chance of development as it moves northward.
