TROPICAL DISTURBANCE 20 SHOWING SIGNS OF DEVELOPMENT

July 20, 2011554Views

Disturbance 20 is located near 10.4N/40.2W and
is moving west near 15 mph. There has not been much change in overall
organization since yesterday but the associated thunderstorm activity is
beginning to increase. There has been little overall change in organization
since yesterday morning but it has developed a low-level circulation. Several
computer models indicate it could strengthen over the next few days and move
across the northeastern Caribbean Sea early Saturday, then into the Southern
Bahamas on Monday, possibly as a depression or tropical storm.

Presently the Disturbance is no threat to the
Virgin Islands however, as forecasters are of the opinion that the system may strengthen, residents should monitor the disturbance for any sudden change in strength and
motion. The DDM will continue to monitor the system and provide updates where necessary.
