What was Tropical Depression Seven is now Tropical Storm Fiona, the sixth named storm in the Atlantic this season.
Fiona became a tropical storm on Wednesday, Sept. 14. Even though wind shear and dry air will prevent it from significantly intensifying, but some additional strengthening is expected later this week.
Regardless of strength, this cyclone will likely bring strong winds and heavy rainfall to the Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico by Friday.
As of now, most models agree that this system will continue moving west, interacting with the islands.
Spaghetti models or plots show a series of individual computer forecast models together on one map. They are useful to give insight into whether multiple models are in agreement on the path of the storm but they do not address the storm’s forecast intensity, winds, flooding and storm surge potential or other data.
