Tropical disturbance may develop; could threaten southeastern Bahamas

Sunday, 21 September 2008 23:43

An area of showers and thunderstorms over Puerto Rico and the northern Lesser Antilles is being closely monitored for development and could be the next named system of the 2008 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Meanwhile, trouble is in store for the Southeast coast by the middle of the week as winds, swells and rip currents increase again, whether or not a coastal low develops.

A reconnaissance flight was underway early this afternoon to investigate the area of disturbed weather over Puerto Rico and the northern Lesser Antilles. The disturbance has been showing more signs of organization today with circulation around a common low pressure center.

Warm water and weakening wind shear will both support strengthening and could allow for development into a tropical depression within the next day or two. If this storm does develop, it will be named Kyle.

The AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center will be closely monitoring this system for potential effects on the East Coast later in the week. In the meantime, heavy rain will continue to drench Puerto Rico and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands through Monday.
