Tropical Storm Bonnie Forms, Heading Towards Central America

Tropical Storm Bonnie has formed in the southwestern Caribbean Sea, making its way towards a landfall near the Costa Rica/Nicaragua border tonight.

The National Hurricane Center says heavy rains could trigger flash flooding and mudslides.

Bonnie is then expected to remerge in the Pacific Ocean and strengthen into a hurricane off the west coast of Mexico.

Closer to home, the main threat for our area is increased rain chances from a low pressure area that has moved inland over the Texas coast. The local National Weather Service Office says a marginal risk of flash flooding remains through Sunday morning.

Development chances have continued to fall for a system in the western tropical Atlantic.

"A tropical wave located about 100 miles east of the Windward Islands continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms," said the NHC. "The associated shower activity and gusty winds are expected to spread across the Windward Islands later today. Any development of this system should be slow to occur during the next day or so before the wave moves into unfavorable conditions over the eastern Caribbean Sea."
