Possible Flash Floods for Northern Leeward Islands

SINT MAARTEN/CARIBBEAN – Crown Weather reported over the weekend that an area of disturbed weather could form in the Caribbean Sea next week and could bring flash floods to the Northern Leeward Islands.

“I will be watching the area just east of the Bahamas and just north of Puerto Rico late next week through next weekend as it looks increasingly more likely that an area of disturbed weather may form here.

“In fact, an area of low pressure may form in this area of disturbed weather and whatever disturbance does form will need to be monitored for possible tropical development,” Crown Weather reported on Saturday.

Crown Weather points out that two long-term weather forecast models, the GFS and the Canadian model, forecasts that this area of disturbed weather could become a tropical depression or maybe a tropical storm just East of The Bahamas.

Other weather forecast models do not go as far as forecasting a tropical depression or storm.

Soualiga Newsday Weather Watch will continue to monitor forecasts models and keep you informed.
