THE United States National Hurricane Center (NHC) warns that Tropical Storm Gonzalo is moving quickly towards the southern Windward Islands and is expected to bring accompanying conditions tomorrow (Saturday).

In its 11am update on Friday, the NHC stated that the centre of Gonzalo would approach the southern Windward Islands Friday Night, move across the islands on Saturday and over the eastern Caribbean Sea on Sunday.

Winds were near 85 kilometres per hour but there was uncertainty in the intensity forecast with some strengthening possible during the next day before Gonzalo reaches the Islands.
