Islands hit by Irma bracing for another hurricane”

In an 11 a.m. bulletin, it advised that tropical storm conditions are possible within portions of Leeward Islands on Monday, with hurricane conditions possible by Monday night or Tuesday.

Interests in the Caribbean should watch this system closely, especially locations in the northern Leeward Islands that were recently devastated by Hurricane Irma.

A potential tropical storm located about 755 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles is expected to become a tropical storm later today as it heads west at a quick 22 mph. Forecasters expected the hurricane to turn gradually to the northeast over the next couple days, keeping it offshore. On the forecast track, the system is expected to approach the Leeward Islands on Monday.

It is moving towards the west-north-west and now has a 70 per cent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in 48 hours and a 90 per cent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone over the next five days. Wind gusts up to tropical storm strength are possible and rough seas with waves and swells averaging 7 to 9 feet or 2.7 metres are also expected with the passage of this system.

Meanwhile, Tropical Depression Fourteen has been upgraded to Tropical Storm Lee, the 12th named storm of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.

The depression is moving toward the west-northwest at almost 12 miles per hour, and a west or west-north-west motion is forecast during the next couple of days.

Atmospheric conditions should be favorable for gradual development and it is forecast to strengthen into Tropical Storm Maria as early as Saturday night. Lee is not a threat to land.
