By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) are tracking Tropical depression 13 that has just formed in the Caribbean.
Heavy rains are expected across the ABC islands and portions of South America through Friday.
On the forecast track, Tropical depression 13 is expected to move near the ABC Islands, the coast of northwestern Venezuela, and the Guajira Peninsula of Colombia tonight through Friday morning.
The system is then forecast to move across the southwestern Caribbean Sea, moving near San Andres and Providencia Islands Saturday night, and approaching the coast of Nicaragua on Sunday morning.
Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
Tropical Depression 13 could strengthen to a Tropical Storm by Friday morning, NHC noted.
After that, a faster rate of strengthening is likely, with the system expected to become a hurricane by Saturday night as it approaches San Andres and Providencia Islands.
The NHC says that heavy rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods.
There is also the potential for life-threatening mudslides across portions of Central America this weekend.
