(Reuters) - Post-tropical cyclone Leslie, located over the central Atlantic Ocean, has a 100 percent chance of developing into a subtropical storm over the next 48 hours, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.
The system is located about 1,000 miles west of the Azores, the Miami-based forecaster said on Friday.
"Regardless of whether the system becomes a subtropical or tropical cyclone, Leslie should continue to produce strong winds and high seas over a large portion of the central Atlantic for the next several days," NHC said.
