Tropical Storm Fiona heading toward the Leeward Islands

The center of Tropical Storm Fiona is expected to move across the Leeward Islands Friday night and early Saturday and move near the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico late Saturday into Sunday.

☔️ Fiona is forecast to produce heavy rains over Leeward Islands and Northern Windward Islands, British and U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Turks and Caicos and Eastern Dominican Republic.
The peak of the flooding is expected over Puerto Rico, with 4 to 8 inches and maximum totals of 12 inches, particularly across eastern and southern Puerto Rico.
These rains may produce flash and urban flooding, along with mudslides in areas of higher terrain, particularly southern and eastern Puerto Rico and the eastern Dominican Republic.

🌊 Localized coastal flooding will be possible along the coasts of the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico in areas of onshore winds Saturday into Sunday.
Swells generated by Fiona are affecting the Leeward Islands, and are expected to spread westward to the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico today and Saturday.
These conditions could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
