Tropical Storm Lee is expected to become an “extremely dangerous” hurricane by the weekend, with the potential to reach Category 4 status. The storm is forecasted to pass near the northern Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico, potentially impacting the Lesser Antilles islands. While there are no coastal warnings or watches in effect, interests in the Leeward Islands should monitor the storm’s progress. Spaghetti weather models show various possible paths for the storm, with some potentially impacting the U.S. Mid-Atlantic or New England coast next week. Florida is currently recovering from Hurricane Idalia, which caused severe flooding and significant damage.
