Tropical forecast:

Hurricane Fiona will bring heavy rain across the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico which could lead to flooding and mudslides. Fiona is expected to continue gaining strength as it moves north and eventually northeast. We could see this storm become a major hurricane Wednesday morning, bringing potential impacts to Bermuda late Thursday into Friday. We will not see any local impacts over land but could see our rip current risk increase late in the week along the coast.
