Another Tropical Depression Likely To Form Late Monday

August 24, 2015



BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) – Tropical storm Danny has become a tropical depression as it moves through the Eastern Caribbean, but residents were keeping their eye on a weather system that was 1,250 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

The Miami-based National Hurricane Center (NHC) said that the shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a low pressure system “has continued to become better organized” since Sunday and satellite data also indicates that “the low circulation is gradually becoming better defined.

“If current trends continue, a tropical depression is likely to form later today or tonight while the low moves westward at around 20 mph.”

NHC said that Danny was now located 20 miles south of Guadeloupe and that a tropical storm warning is in effect for Saba and St Eustatius.

“On the forecast track, the centre of Danny will continue to move across the southern Leeward Islands later this morning, and move into the northeastern Caribbean Sea later today,” the NHC added.

It said Danny is expected to produce two to four inches of rain over the Leeward Islands, the United States and British Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico through Tuesday.
