Most reliable forecast models track the system northeast of the Bahamas and curving back out to sea over the weekend and into early next week, when it could strengthen over the open water.

Another system near Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula is also being monitored for potential development.

Should either system strengthen into a tropical storm, it would be named Gabrielle.
