According to the National Weather Service, it’s expected to become a tropical storm later today or Thursday. If it does, it would be given the name Fiona.

The depression is expected to move into the Caribbean this weekend.

There is a large degree of uncertainty with regards to where TD7 will track next week, but the current long range forecast is for the storm to curve northwest into the central Bahamas.
