A low pressure system has developed a couple of hundred miles north of Puerto Rico. This disturbance is interacting with an upper-level low and is producing a large area of cloudiness and disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity. There is some potential for the low to briefly acquire subtropical or tropical characteristics during the next day or so while it moves northwestward or north-northwestward. After that time, development is not expected when the system moves north-northeastward and merges with a frontal zone. Regardless of formation, locally heavy rainfall and possible flooding should continue across Puerto Rico and the Dominican
Republic through tonight. 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.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
