The National Weather Service told Cayman 27 it’s got an eye on the latest tropical disturbance.

“This system has the potential to cause a lot of problems for us,” said NWS Director John Tibbetts, who said don’t take your eyes off this one.

He told Cayman 27 the tropical wave is taking shape over the Atlantic ocean and could impact the Eastern Caribbean by Wednesday afternoon. He said if the path doesn’t stray from projections, warm water could help the storm develop.

“As we get to this time of the year, the seawater temperatures are fairly high, so they are going to be fairly supportive of the development of a system,” said Mr. Tibbetts. “So if this system does move north as it is tracked to do, then it will develop. The question more is the track more than anything else.”

The National Hurricane Centre in Miami said on its website it plans to send the hurricane hunter plane out Tuesday for a closer look at the brewing storm.
