Possible tropical storm threatens Atlantic coast
Forcasters are predicting that a weather system off Puerto Rico could potentially become a tropical storm even though hurricane season has been over for nearly a week.
At about 5p.m. Saturday, the system was approximately 550 miles east-northeast of Puerto Rico.
It is expected to continue in that general direction at about 15-20 mph over the next two days according to the National Hurricane Center.
Within the next 24 hours, forcasters are predicting that it might become a tropical or subtropical storm.
