Local weather forecasters continue to keep a close eye on Tropical Storm Issac, which is expected to become a hurricane by Monday.
At 5 a.m., Tropical Storm Issac was located near 14.5 degrees north or 38.1 degrees west or about 1440 miles east of Barbados.
The system is packing winds near 50 miles per hour and is moving towards the west at nine miles per hour.
The Barbados Meteorological Service says based on its current track, Issac is expected to move over the northern Lesser Antilles late Wednesday into Thursday.
According to the forecasters, it is too early to identify the likely impact on Barbados since the center of the system is projected to pass just to the north of the island.
The Met Office however notes that it may become necessary to issue a watch or a warning for the island as the system draws closer to the region.
