On the forecast track, the system is expected to approach the Leeward Islands on Monday.

Wind gusts up to tropical storm strength are possible and rough seas with waves and swells averaging 7 to 9 feet or 2.1.to 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.
