A large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms near and to the south-southeast of the Dominican Republic is associated with a tropical wave.
While upper-level winds are not forecast to be conducive for significant development, locally heavy rainfall is possible over portions of the Dominican Republic and Haiti during the next couple of days. The disturbance is forecast to move slowly northwestward through the weekend.
Meanwhile, Hurricane Humberto is moving near the island of Bermuda. Wind gusts to hurricane-force have been reported on the island. Hurricane-force winds should continue there through the night.
The hurricane will then move out to sea over colder waters and be no threat to land.
The final advisory was issued on Tropical Depression Imelda last night. However, heavy rain and flash flooding concerns will continue for southeast Texas.
