The government of the Bahamas has issued a Tropical Storm Warning for the following islands in the northwestern Bahamas: the Abacos, Berry Islands, Bimini, Eleuthera, Grand Bahama Island, and New Providence.

The system has a 70 percent chance of forming into a tropical depression or tropical storm in the next 48 hours.
