TAMPA, Fla.- Tropical Cyclone 9 is picking up steam but still has no low-level center, according to the NWS.

A Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The disturbance has moved into the eastern Caribbean and external bands are now approaching the U.S. Virgin Islands. Additional strengthening is expected later today. Regardless of development, this system is expected to bring flooding rains across Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, generating life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides, as
well as river flooding, particularly across mainland Puerto Rico–
mainly tonight through early Thursday morning.

Weather, marine, and coastal conditions are expected to deteriorate as early as this afternoon with inclement weather continuing through Friday morning.

For Florida, the cone of uncertainty is back.

We will be following NOAA and the NWS as this storm develops.
