Tammy is expected to strengthen to a hurricane by Saturday while it moves near or over portions of the Leeward Islands.

Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin in portions of the Lesser Antilles within the tropical storm warning area this afternoon or evening, with hurricane conditions possible within the hurricane watch area on Saturday.

Additional watches and warnings could be required later today.

Heavy rains from Tammy will begin to affect the Leeward and northern Windward

Islands today, spreading into the British and U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico over the weekend.

This rainfall may produce isolated flash and urban flooding, along with isolated mudslides in areas of higher terrain.
