MIAMI, USA — An area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms extending from near the southeastern coast of the Dominican Republic southward over the central Caribbean Sea is associated with a broad and weak area of low pressure.
According to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, environmental conditions are expected to remain generally unfavourable for development while the surface low drifts westward during the next few days.
This system has a 10 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next five days.
Regardless of development, heavy rainfall and flooding is possible across portions of Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands during the next couple of days.
