MONTH EARLY? Hurricane Season Just Can’t Wait With Tropical System Set To Form This Weekend

SAN JUAN — We’re still almost a month away from the start of the Atlantic hurricane season, so why are we already looking at tropical weather warnings?

A weak low pressure center forecast to develop near Cuba could prove interesting this weekend as it swirls westward into the Caribbean Sea.

We take a look at what this system may have in store – and whether or not we’ll be seeing an ahead-of-its-time tropical disturbance.

  • Heavy rain through the weekend for The Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Jamaica, Hispaniola
  • Lesser amounts – up to 5 inches of rainfall – expected east of Caribbean sea (Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, eastern Cuba)
  • Up to 10 inches possible, locally higher over mountainous terrain after low moves into Caribbean (Jamaica, western Cuba)
  • Slight potential for low pressure area to become a more organized storm; could be a named subtropical system
  • Moisture from this disturbance funnels up Atlantic coast through early next week, with some heavy rain possible for Florida and the Carolinas
