USVI In Path Of New Weather System; Tropical Cyclone Development Possible By Midweek -

The Miami-based National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said that the wave, located about 200 miles east of the Leeward Islands - Antigua and Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts-Nevis, Anguilla -is producing a large area of disturbed weather over most of the western tropical Atlantic Ocean. The NHC gave the system a 20 percent chance of development through Monday, but a 70 percent chance within five days.

It is forecast to move westward to west-northwestward for the next few days, passing near or north of the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, and the southeastern Bahamas.

The last named storm was Hurricane Oscar late last month.

Forecasters say the weather system could affect the Turks and Caicos Islands and the southern or central Bahamas by late Wednesday or Thursday before a cold front coming from the east coast pushes the system northward and eastward.

The 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season doesn't end until November 30, and there's one more system out there that National Hurricane Center forecasters say could turn into a tropical depression or tropical storm in the coming days. Only 89 (5.4 %) of the tropical storms and 59 (5.9%) of the hurricanes developed in November.

- The end of hurricane season is quickly approaching, but it looks like we'll probably end up adding one more named storm to the tally for the 2018 season. That's the most likely time for tropical depressions, storms and hurricanes to form.

Alberto formed before the season's official beginning on June 1, making it the fourth year in a row with a storm before the season's official start on June 1.
