The National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued gale warnings for the Caribbean, southwest Atlantic, and the Atlantic High Seas on Saturday, May 16, as a tropical system develops off the north coast of the Bahamas. According to the NHC, further development is expected, with an 80 percent chance of the system forming a named storm by the evening(local time) of Sunday, May 17.
