Forecasters expect no significant development during the next day or two, but conditions could become a more conducive by Tuesday.
A tropical or subtropical cyclone could form during the middle of the week, forecasters say, while the system moves near or north of the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and the southeastern Bahamas.
The Hurricane Center gives the system a 50 percent chance of formation in the next five days.
