An area of disturbed weather developed into Tropical Storm Gonzalo around 2 p.m. EDT Sunday near the Lesser Antilles.  The center was located around 200 miles east of Guadeloupe and 230 miles east-southeast of Antigua with 40 mph sustained winds.  Its initial movement was westerly around 10 mph.

The forecast track will take it across Puerto Rico on Monday, possibly becoming a hurricane by Monday night.  After hitting Puerto Rico, the storm will move just east of the Bahamas and then curve south of Bermuda.  It does not appear that it will impact the United States.


The latest information can be found in the CBS 6 Hurricane Tracker.

Elsewhere in the Atlantic, Hurricane Fay is northeast of Bermuda, and will continue moving eastward.
