Flood Warning in Effect for Cayman Islands

The National Weather Service has advised that a broad area of low pressure just southwest of the Cayman Islands is expected to produce scattered showers and thunder across the area for the next 24 hours. Showers are expected to be heavy at times.

A flood warning is in effect for the Cayman Islands.

The forecast for Friday, Saturday and Sunday states that there will be cloudy to partly cloudy skies with a 60% chance showers and thunder. Showers may become locally heavy at times leading to possible flooding of low lying areas.

The National Hurricane Center advises that a broad area of low pressure located near Grand Cayman Island is producing a large area of showers and thunderstorms mainly east and south of the center.

This system has become much better organized since yesterday, and a tropical depression could form during the next couple of days while the low moves slowly toward the northwest.

This system is now anticipated to move near western Cuba this

weekend and move slowly across the southeastern Gulf of Mexico by

early next week.

Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall

will be possible over portions of the Cayman Islands, Cuba,

southern Florida and the Keys, and the northwestern Bahamas through

the weekend.

Residents are advised to monitor this system closely
