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.

Issued: 6:51 AM AST Aug. 24, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* all of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

* Through midnight tonight

* a strong tropical wave is forecast to move across the region today
from its position over the Leeward Islands this
morning... increasing shower and thunderstorm activity across the
U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. All interests should
monitor the progress of the evolution of this weather scenario.

* The potential of flooding rains is high for Puerto Rico and
the U.S. Virgin Islands. Rainfall totals between 2 and 4
inches with locally higher amounts are possible with this
strong tropical wave. Localized flash flooding... landslides
and Rockfall in areas of steep terrain are likely in areas of
heavy rainfall. At this time... the areas more prone to flash
flooding are the U.S. Virgin Islands and the eastern half of
Puerto Rico.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
