Tropical Storm Could Enter East Caribbean, Become A Hurricane By Tuesday





The Meteorological Service says Tropical Storm Dorian could enter the Eastern Caribbean Sea and become a hurricane by Tuesday.


At 4:00 p.m. the center of Tropical Storm Dorian was located near latitude 11.5 degrees North, longitude 54.2 degrees West. Dorian is moving toward the west near 22 km/h, and this motion should

continue through Sunday night. A turn toward the west-northwest is expected on Monday, with this motion continuing through Tuesday night. On the forecast track, the center of Dorian is expected to

be near the Windward Islands late Monday or early Tuesday and move into the eastern Caribbean Sea on Tuesday.


Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 km/h with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is expected during the next few days, and Dorian could be near hurricane strength by Tuesday

over the eastern Caribbean Sea. 


Tropical Storm Dorian is not a threat to Jamaica at this time.

The Meteorological Service will continue to monitor the progress of this system.
