Tropical Depression to Take Aim at Puerto Rico This Weekend

Tropical Depression number 7 formed.

After a lengthy period of quiet weather in the Atlantic Ocean, our next Tropical Depression has formed.

The National Hurricane Center is watching an area of thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure that has organized into a tropical depression. The winds are the upper levels of the atmosphere are not favorable for significant development.

Tropical Depression Seven is forecasted to move west over portions of the Leeward Islands Friday and approach Puerto Rico this weekend. Regardless of development, this system is expected to bring gusty winds and heavy rainfall to the areas in its path. 

The National Weather Service in Puerto Rico warns that the main threats this weekend could be flooding in urban areas, small streams, and mudslides.

Marine conditions will deteriorate slightly across the north-facing local waters of the island. Offshore waters will see up to 7 feet of wave height through the first part of the weekend.
