NHC Continues To Watch Epsilon, Area In Caribbean Sea


The National Hurricane Center continued to watch Epsilon in the Atlantic and a possible area of development in the Caribbean Sea Tuesday.

Forecasters warn Epsilon could be at or near hurricane strength as it makes its closest approach to Bermuda later this week.

"While it is too soon to determine the exact details of Epsilon's track and intensity near the island, there is a risk of direct impacts from wind, rainfall, and storm surge on Bermuda. A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for the island," said the NHC.

There is also an area of low pressure in the Caribbean Sea that currently has a low chance of development, but could still bring heavy rains to parts of Cuba, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and the Yucatan peninsula over the coming days.
