1200 miles east of the Antilles now, early to guess the final outcome.

a possibility?, oooh Yes, as every system popping up East of the Islands hides the possibility to develop into a Storm and influence or even hit the Islands, including DR.

actually we have 2 Stormy Systems wandering East of the Islands in the far away Atlantic, the above mentioned named Invest95L and East of it we also have the next one, much larger and running a much less dry environment, both are wandering on the usual Westward Route towards the Caribbean Islands.

by it's actual very high westarwd speed of around 25miles per hour it could influence the DR weather as early as of tuesday evening onwards, but there is still the possibility that it will not come any close, or not develop, etc etc.

it is monitored, but it is too early for speculations, it is usual for this time of the season that the systems start to pop up out there, and til mid/late October at least we will have such almost permanently to watch, it's da Season.

yes, i even put the odds of development into a storm well higher than the Hurricane Centers 60%, I await it to be declared a Tropical Storm Tonight.

to me it already is a complete Tropical Depression which should have it's number.

as far as to where it goes and how strong it may become, still too early for the estimates, it will take an other 24hrs to figure out reliably and from then it may be just an other 24hrs till it's influence arrives, If it arrives.

it is a very fast forward moving sytem, ruinning over 25mphr westwards, at this moment is should be no more than 1100 miles east if the lesser antilles, maybe less with its center.

it's da weather,

we are in da Season and will already keep an eye on the Big System east oif the above watched formation.
