A broad area of low pressure centered over the eastern Dominican Republic has changed little in organization during the past several hours. However surface pressures are falling in the area and upper-level winds are expected to become a little more conducive for development.

This system has the potential to become a tropical depression at any time during the next day or two as it moves north or northwest away from Hispaniola. Heavy rainfall with potentially life-threatening flash flooding is expected to continue over the area through early Wednesday.

Interests in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos Islands, and the southeastern Bahamas should continue to monitor the progress of this system and products issued by their local weather forecast offices.
