Tropical Storm Fiona Poses Flood Threat To Caribbean, Including Puerto Rico.
On this track, Fiona should reach the Leeward islands by Friday night. It will then move near the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Hispaniola this weekend into early next week.
Fiona has been subtly losing latitude since early Thursday, meaning its forecast has drifted southward and westward recently.
The storm is fighting unfavorable upper-level winds (wind shear) and dry air, which is preventing it from strengthening. Some intensification is possible this weekend before Fiona likely reaches Hispaniola (the Dominican Republic and Haiti).
After that, uncertainty grows because of that possible land interaction, but some intensification is possible once Fiona reaches the waters north of Hispaniola.
