Weather Alert: Hurricane Tammy
Hurricane conditions are expected in portions of the Leeward Islands by late tonight or Saturday morning. Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin in portions of the Lesser Antilles within the warning area later today.
Heavy rains from Tammy will begin to affect the Leeward and northern Windward Islands later today and into Saturday morning, spreading into the British and U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico as early as Sunday. This rainfall may produce isolated flash and urban flooding, along with isolated mudslides in areas of higher terrain.
A storm surge could produce coastal flooding in areas of onshore winds as the center of Tammy moves near or over the Leeward Islands. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and dangerous waves.
