The Dominica Meteorological Office in collaboration with the Office of Disaster Management continues to monitor an area of low pressure located about 1000 miles east south east of Dominica and the Windward Islands.

This system is expected in our area by late Friday into Saturday.

There is a strong possibility that this system could become a Tropical Depression or Storm by the time it approaches the islands of the Lesser Antilles.

Residents are advised to continue to monitor the progress/development of this system and begin to take all precautionary measures in preparation for the arrival of this system.

Updated information is available at www.weather.gov.dm, www.odm.gov.dm and the weather hotline at 447 5555.
