As of 5 a.m. Wednesday, the system is about 1,405 miles east-southeast of the Northern Leeward Islands with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph.

It is moving west at 15 mph.

It will continue west through Wednesday and head west-northwest at a similar speed tonight and throughout the rest of the week, the NHC said. Forecasters predict the system will gradually strengthen over the next 48 hours and become a tropical storm later today.
