Tropical Storm Watch issued for several Caribbean islands

AT 11:00 P.M. THE center of Tropical Storm Maria was located near 12.5°N, 53.7°W at or about 380 miles or 612 km east of Barbados.

Hurricane watches have been issued for Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Montserrat.

A slower west-northwest motion was expected during the next couple of days and maximum sustained winds were near 85 km/h with higher gusts.

The system is expected to approach the Leeward Islands tomorrow and a tropical storm watch is in effect for St Lucia, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Barbados and St Vincent and the Grenadines.

In an 11 a.m. bulletin, it advised that tropical storm conditions are possible within portions of Leeward Islands on Monday, with hurricane conditions possible by Monday night or Tuesday. These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.

Two more disturbances have appeared in the Atlantic: Tropical Storm Lee and Tropical Storm Maria.

Maria could also affect the British and U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico by mid-week as a risky major hurricane, and hurricane watches could be issued for these islands as early as Sunday.

Hence, a High-Surf Advisory and Small-Craft Warning remains in effect until 12:00 noon Tuesday, September 19.

A rather dry period is forecast for the next three days but 90-degree temperatures are also expected.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 miles per hour (85 km/h) with higher gusts. The storm was about 1,160 kilometres west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands and posed no immediate threat to land.
