HURRICANE CENTER, bahamas, 12 Oct 2014
1. Cloudiness and thunderstorms associated with a small low pressure
area located a few hundred miles east of the Leeward Islands continue to show signs of organization.
Although dry air may hamper development, the overall environment is expected to be generally
conducive, and a tropical depression could form during the next day or so. The low is forecast to move westward at around 10 mph, and interests from the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico to Hispaniola and
the southeastern Bahamas should monitor its progress. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate this disturbance this afternoon, if necessary. Regardless of development,
areas of heavy rains and gusty winds are expected to move across the Leeward Islands starting later today.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent.
