We’re watching a couple of disturbances in the Atlantic for potential development this week as they approach the Lesser Antilles.   

The disturbance closest to the Lesser Antilles is looking more organized today and could become a tropical storm at any time.   

Its path could take it over Puerto Rico and Hispaniola, which would limit development and make for primarily a rain and flood threat.
