Hurricane hunters noticed the storm's center to be farther southwest than in former National Hurricane Center (NHC) advisories, but the impacts it will have on land are still anticipated to be little as it stays in the open waters of the Atlantic.

The National Hurricane Center said: "Some strengthening is forecast during the next 24 hours or so as Peter moves over warmer sea-surface temperatures."

Flood Threats 

Presently, no tropical watches or warnings are active, but there is a possibility that early this week the storm will bring flood threats to portions of the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Northern Leeward Islands.

As per the NHC: "Rainfall around the southern periphery of Tropical Storm Peter may lead to areas of urban and small stream flooding from late Sunday into Tuesday." 

By midweek, the storm is anticipated to gradually weaken as it goes into a more unfavorable environmentPeter's current forecast track shows a northward turn Wednesday, reducing the impact the storm will have on land as it keeps meandering across the Atlantic by the weekend.

This week, some coastal regions of the eastern US could experience rip currents because of the ways in which waves travel hundreds of miles away from the storm.
