Jerry Becomes A Hurricane, Forecast To Pass North Of Leeward Islands

Tropical storm Jerry has become a hurricane with forecasters warning of likely life-threatening surf and rip current conditions for portions of the northern Leeward Islands by Thursday afternoon.

The US National Hurricane Centre (NHC) is predicting that Jerry will most likely angle toward the northwest by late in the weekend.

It is then expected to head north by early next week before swinging toward the northeast and farther out to sea, according to media reports.

The Weather Network reports that Tropical storm watches were issued for Barbuda, Anguilla, St. Maarten, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Saba and St. Eustatius with tropical storm conditions possible within these watch areas by early Friday.

Jerry is the tenth named storm for the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane season.

It’s still too soon to predict with confidence whether or not Jerry will affect the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Bermuda or the mainland United States, according to the Weather Channel.
