BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA (NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER) –  On this Sunday morning, NHC is closely monitoring a low pressure area located about 100 miles southeast of the Turks and Caicos.

The associated showers & thunderstorms became more concentrated overnight and surface observations indicate that gale-force winds have been occurring in brief squalls mainly to the east of the center.

Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for gradual development of this system, and a tropical depression could form during the next couple of days while it moves west-northwestward over the Bahamas and then turns northwestward.

Locally heavy rains and strong gusty winds are possible over Hispaniola today, and over the Turks and Caicos and the southeastern Bahamas during the next day or so.
