Forecasters are reporting that the two weather disturbances that recently formed in the eastern Atlantic are continuing to develop.
Department of Disaster Management (DDM) said on Friday morning that the two systems have “potential of reaching the Caribbean”.
Disturbance 1 is still moving west near 10 miles per hour but forecasters say there is a strong, 90 percent chance of development.
“Forecasters continue to predict that if it did reach the eastern Caribbean, it would not do so until late next week,”
Disturbance 2 is travelling a bit faster in a westerly direction near 12 miles per hour. That system also has a 90 percent chance of development, the DDM said.
The DDM further said: “Forecasters predict that this system may become a tropical storm by the time it moves over the southern Cape Verde Islands on Sunday morning.”
Florence, in the meantime, has downgraded to a tropical storm and is still “a safe distance” from the BVI.
