Moderate Winds and Benign Weather Today
By Meteorologist Malika Dudley / Email: [email protected]
A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect until further notice. A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the next 48 hours somewhere within the specified areas. A watch is typically issued before the possible arrival of tropical storm force winds which make continuing outside preparations dangerous. A watch is the time for you to prepare.
A Hydrologic Outlook has been issued by the National Weather Service. Heavy rain and flash flooding are possible Wednesday and Thursday. The latest forecast for tropical storm Guillermo continues to bring the system over the island chain later this week. Abundant moisture drawn into the circulation will bring the potential for heavy rainfall and flash flooding.
A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for offshore waters beyond 40 nm and out to 240 nm.
