We have rainy evening tonight, and the weekend doesn't look any better. Hurricane Tomas just brushed Haiti and eastern Cuba this afternoon, and it's forecasted to turn east bring the storm north of the local area over the weekend.
We can expect in some areas of the island flash flooding and even mudslides. Please stay tuned to your emergency weather alerts on this developing situation.
Tomas's tail or eastern spiral band is rapidly moving over the Dominican republic and will move into to Puerto Rico this evening. Expect gusty winds in the higher elevations and some possible flash floods in flood prone areas.
Here's the latest computer models for Hurricane Tomas
Else where in the tropics, most global models are suggesting that a strong tropical disturbance will form in the central Caribbean next week. Several models have this system moving in a similar eastward motion as Hurricane Lenny back in November of 1999. Lenny was a powerful Hurricane that impacted St.Croix and the northern leeward islands. We will definably keep a close eye here in eastern Puerto Rico.
Please Stay safe and dry this weekend.
