THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE LOCATED ABOUT 1600 MILES EAST OF THE

RICO IS GRADUALLY BECOMING BETTER ORGANIZED. UPPER-LEVEL WINDS ARE
NOW MORE CONDUCIVE FOR SLOW DEVELOPMENT AND A TROPICAL DEPRESSION
COULD FORM DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO...AND IF NECESSARY...A
RECONNAISSANCE PLANE WILL INVESTIGATE THE SYSTEM MONDAY AFTERNOON.

PUERTO RICO AND THE VIRGIN ISLANDS DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
