'A tropical storm at any time'

At 2 a.m., the National Weather Service reports that the area of disturbance centered 350 miles north of Hispaniola "has the potential to become a tropical storm at any time."

It has a greater than 50 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, the service said.

As of 8 p.m., most computer models had the storm tracking in much the same path as Hurricane Bill. One model, however, has it skirting the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Stay tuned for more updates Tuesday.
