Providenciales, 5 Nov 2014 – A large area of disturbed weather is located over the northeastern
Caribbean Sea and extends northward across Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, and continues over the Atlantic Ocean for several hundred miles. Surface pressures are gradually falling across this region and a low pressure system could form during the next day or so.
This system could briefly acquire subtropical characteristics tomorrow or on Thursday while the low moves west-northwestward to northwestward. After that time, development is not expected while the disturbance moves north-northeastward and eventually merges with another frontal system. Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall and possible flooding can be expected across the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and portions of the Dominican Republic tonight and Wednesday.
For additional information on the heavy rainfall threat, please consult products issued by your national meteorological service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent.
