Sept. 14, 2002 – Tropical Depression 10 just off the coast of South America and Trinidad is forecast to be the cause of strong winds and some rain in the northern Caribbean this weekend. The National Weather Service office in San Juan expects the center to remain well south of the Virgin Islands. However, the northern fringe is expected to affect the V.I. area Saturday night through early Monday.
This should bring a marked increase in winds, cloudiness, showers and thunderstorms to the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Forecasts call for 25 to 35 mph east and southeast winds with higher gusts. As of 5 p.m. Saturday, small craft advisories were in effect, but no flood advisories were issued.
