CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The National Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms that are posing a threat to the North Carolina coast.

An advisory from the National Hurricane Center Wednesday night said the disorganized weather extended from the Bahamas to North Carolina.

Forecasters said conditions are expected to gradually become more favorable for development over the next day as the system heads northward and then turns to the northwest. The forecast said there is a medium chance of formation into a sub-tropical or tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours.

Whether it develops or not, the forecast says heavy rain is possible over portions of the Southeast coast beginning Thursday.
