Weather experts expect ‘gradual strengthening’ of Tropical Storm Tammy during the coming days as the weather system moves toward the West near 17 mph or 28 km/h.

On Wednesday, Saint Lucia Meteorological Services Director Andre Joyeux said Saint Lucia would likely announce a storm watch.

Watches are already in effect for Barbados, Dominica, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Antigua and Barbuda, Montserrat and Nevis.

In its 6:00 am weather report for Thursday, the Saint Lucia Meteorological Services said additional watches and warnings will likely be required later in the day.

Forecasters Vigil Saltibus and Shemma Joseph advised interests in the region to monitor Tammy.

According to the forecasters, at 5:00 am the storm centre was at latitude 13.5 degrees North, longitude 54.8 degrees West or about 480 miles or 775 kilometers east-southeast of Guadeloupe.

Tammy’s maximum sustained winds remain near 40 mph or 65 km/h, with higher gusts.

“A turn toward the west-northwest is forecast by tonight, followed by a turn toward the northwest Friday night or Saturday,” the 6:00 am weather forecast said.

The forecast also said that on the forecast track, the storm centre would move near or over the Leeward Islands Friday and Saturday.

Feeder bands could affect Saint Lucia late Friday.

As a result, the Saint Lucia Meteorological Services Director Andre Joyeux Wednesday urged residents to monitor Tammy and be vigilant.
