Code yellow: a cautionary statement for severe thunderstorms is in effect for Curaçao

MIAMI, WILLEMSTAD - The National Hurricane Center reports that showers and thunderstorms remain disorganized in association with a low-pressure system located over the southeastern Caribbean Sea about 150 miles east-northeast of Curacao.  


The upper-level wind environment over the low is expected to become more conducive for development, and a tropical depression is expected to form during the next day or two while moving west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the central Caribbean Sea. Locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds are likely to affect northwestern Venezuela, the ABC island chain, and northeastern Colombia through Friday.  


The Curaçao Meteorological Department has issued a code yellow. This is a cautionary statement for severe thunderstorms which is in effect for Curaçao. 


A code yellow for rough seas is also in effect for northern and southern coastal sections of Curaçao.
