Looks like there is a broad elongated LLC with multiple swirls rotating around it. This system has a distinct subtropical look to it and is typical for early season storms that have a lot of dry air in them, are sheared, and that develop off old fronts or troughs. The NHC will probably stick with the broad center until convection increases near it and it tightens. It may still be classified as a weak TS if winds are strong enough. The pressure of 1001 mb from a ship report with 39 kt winds would certainly be enough for a 40 mph TS. Tropical storm Arlene had an even more disorganized look last year.
