Thursday, August 21, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: A tropical disturbance that is moving in the direction of the Lesser Antilles will bring gusty winds and heavy rainfall to the Eastern Caribbean heading into the weekend.
Hispaniola could also experience bad weather as the system which has a high chance of developing into a tropical cyclone, continues to move west-northwest at between 15 and 20 miles per hour.
Forecasters say that when the system reaches Hispaniola and eastern Cuba, the mountainous terrain could slow down development of the disturbance; but conditions will become conducive for development again early next week.
By that time it should be in the area of the Bahamas.
If the system develops into a tropical cyclone, it will be the third named storm of the 2014 Hurricane Season.
