Tropical disturbance, 2 a.m. Thursday update

OUTLOOK: The tropical wave in the Central Atlantic has been battling dry air and wind shear but shower activity increased a little during the overnight hours. 

The system could develop into a tropical depression in the next couple days, the National Hurricane Center said.

Most models continue to predict the system will curve north before reaching the U.S. coastline, but that is not assured.

WHAT FLORIDA CAN EXPECT: It's too early to say.

PARTICULARS: As of 2 a.m., the hurricane center gave the system a 60 percent chance of strengthening into a depression or storm over the next two days - and a 60 percent chance over the next five days.

Earlier this week, it had been given a 70 percent chance of developing by Friday.

LOCATION: 850 miles east of the Windward Islands
