By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) say that a tropical depression could form in the Caribbean this weekend.
The broad and elongated area of low pressure is located over the far southeastern Caribbean Sea just off the coast of Venezuela and continues to produce an expansive area of showers and thunderstorms over the southern Windward Islands, northern South America, and adjacent waters.
The NHC notes that environmental conditions are expected to be most conducive for development while the system moves westward at about 15 mph, and a tropical depression is likely to form in the next day or two by the time it enters the south-central Caribbean Sea.
Additional strengthening is anticipated while the system moves westward over the southwestern Caribbean Sea toward Central America late Friday through Sunday.
This tropical disturbance will produce heavy rainfall with localized flooding, as well as gusty winds to gale force over portions of the Windward Islands, northern portions of Venezuela including Isla Margarita, the ABC Islands, and the Guajira Peninsula of Colombia during the next day or two.
This system has a 90% chance of formation through the next 5 days.
