Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, (#1) Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a small area of low pressure located North of the Virgin Islands remains disorganized. Interaction of this system with Hispaniola could limit development through tonight.

Regardless of tropical cyclone formation, gusty winds and heavy rainfall are expected across portions of the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands today, and over Hispaniola and the Southeastern Bahamas tonight and Saturday. Interests in those islands should monitor the progress of this disturbance. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system this afternoon, if necessary. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is giving this system a High chance, 60%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a High chance, 80%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. In the Eastern Pacific, (#1) Tropical Storm Karina has winds of 65mph, gusting to 75mph, with a pressure of 997mbars. Movement is East at 5mph.
