A Tropical Storm Watch is currently in effect for Barbuda, Anguilla, St. Maarten, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Saba and St. Eustatius. A west-northwest motion is expected over the next few days.

Jerry is expected to pass north of Puerto Rico on Saturday and east of the southeastern Bahamas on Sunday.
