So June just began and we already have deep low which has potential for developing into our first named storm in the 2011 Hurricane Season. This is what the Hurricane Center has to say about the storm as of this evening.
Satellite images indicates that the broad area of low pressure located roughly a hundred miles south of Jamaica continues to show signs of organization. Environmental conditions are generally conducive for further development…and there is a medium chance…30 percent…of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Heavy rains could cause flash flooding and mud slides over portions of Haiti…the Dominican Republic… Jamaica…and extreme southeastern Cuba over the next day or two as the low remains nearly stationary over the west-central Caribbean Sea.
