ORLANDO, Fla. — Tropical Storm Fiona is heading into the Caribbean, bringing with it flooding rain and high winds.
Channel 9 meteorologist Brian Shields said Fiona is tracking toward Puerto Rico, the U.S. and the British Virgin Islands, with winds near 65 mph.
Fiona is expected to bring tropical storm conditions to the northwest Caribbean by Friday night.
Fiona is forecast to have winds of up to 65 mph as it passes over Puerto Rico. After that it is forecast to curve to the northwest taking it to the far southeast Bahamas.
Tropical storm warnings are in effect for the northern Leeward Islands, including Antigua and Barbuda.
Tropical Storm watches and warnings are likely later today for Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
Shields said it is possible for the storm to strengthen into a hurricane.
