Thursday Update

Good morning my friends, hope your Thursday is off to a good start. It has been another busy morning in the weather center as we head further into the hurricane season, things are starting to pop. Today we have hurricane Gaston in the Atlantic. This storm is located about 1225 miles east of the Leeward Islands with winds of 75 mph and moving to the NW at about 17 mph. There are currently no coastal watches or warnings with this storm. Gaston seems to be weakening and could become a Tropical Storm later today. This storm should be no problem for the islands unless it would drastically change it’s track. The islands are dealing with another problem however. A broad area of low pressure that is disorganized is about 200 miles NW of Puerto Rico. This system is causing gale force winds for the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. This system also has the potential to become a Tropical Cyclone in the next couple days. Whether it develops or not, this system can bring gusty winds, heavy rains, flash floods and possible mud slides to such areas as the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and the Bahamas. Interests in the Bahamas and Florida should monitor this storm. Finally over in the Pacific we now have Tropical Storm Lester located about 185 miles S-SW of Socorro Island with winds of 40 mph and moving W-NW at 12 mph. There are currently no coastal watches or warnings with this storm. This storm has the potential to develop into a hurricane over the next couple days. Well, that’s all for now. Remember, you can get complete updates and forecast details on One Caribbean Television. If you are not currently receiving the station, call your local cable provider and ask them if they would add it to your lineup. Have a great day everyone.
