10th SEPTEMBER, 2019 — As Tropical Storm Gabrielle dissipates in the North Atlantic, forecasters continue to monitor three other systems.
Disturbance 2 is near the north coast of Hispaniola and could develop further as it moves northwest toward the Gulf of Mexico.
Disturbance 1 is an area of low pressure located about 900 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. It is expected to continue to move slowly west over the next few days. Although this system has a relatively low chance for further development, it could bring thunderstorms to the Virgin Islands beginning Friday and into the weekend.
Disturbance 3 is located near the western coast of Africa, but it is expected to move rapidly west over the next few days with some chance of further development. Depending on conditions as it approaches the Lesser Antilles, this system could bring impacts to the Territory early next week.
As always at this time of year, residents and visitors should continue to monitor conditions and maintain a state of readiness in case of sudden changes in the forecast.
Persons at home and abroad are encouraged to download the DDM’s Alert app in the Apple App store or Google Play store to receive updates of any hazards affecting the Territory.
