The Barbados Meteorological Services is monitoring an area of low pressure over the mid- Atlantic, that could become a Tropical Storm by the time it approaches Barbados and the southern Lesser Antilles late Friday, early Saturday.
In a special weather bulletin issued early today by the department, it noted that the area of low pressure was now centered near 9°N  39.6°W or  about 1400 miles or 2255km  to the east- south east of Barbados.
“Model analysis indicates that there is a very strong possibility that this system could  become  a Tropical Storm by the time it approaches Barbados and the southern  Lesser Antilles late Friday / early Saturday. This department will continue to monitor the development of this system and will be issuing  further statements on its progress over the next few days,” it stated. (PR)
