Low pressure area brings heavy rains to Bahamas, Hispaniola and Cuba
MIAMI, USA — A weak area of low pressure was located between the northeastern coast of Cuba and the central Bahamas on Friday. The associated shower and thunderstorm activity increased during the day on Friday, but remained disorganized and is located mainly to the east and southeast of the low.
According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, upper-level winds are expected to remain unfavourable for significant development during the next day or so while the system moves west-northwestward at about 10 mph.
Regardless of development, heavy rains, with the potential to cause flash floods and mud slides, were expected over Hispaniola on Friday and over eastern and central Cuba through the weekend. Gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall were likely over portions of The Bahamas.
