A tropical disturbance we've monitored since last week, may have a dangerous future in store for the southeast U.S. and Gulf coasts this weekend into next week. The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Rainfall totals of 2-4 inches (locally higher) are expected through Wednesday night in those areas.

The National Hurricane Center says this system has a medium to high chance of development into a tropical depression or tropical storm over the next 2 to 5 days. A tight consensus of our guidance suggests the disturbance should continue in a general west or west-northwest trajectory the next several days.
