Current forecasts indicate that Hurricane Lee might follow an unpredictable path in the upcoming days, affecting multiple regions.

According to the Fox 25 news portal, dangerous waves and rip currents are anticipated to start on Sunday along much of the U.S. east coast.

Currently, the National Hurricane Center is maintaining regular communication with the public to provide updates about Lee’s progress through the Atlantic.

This unpredictability is largely attributed to the intricate nature of weather patterns and ocean currents, which can sway its course.

As reported by Fox 25, powerful waves induced by Lee are anticipated to hit the British and US Virgin Islands.

Additionally, they are expected to affect Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos Islands, the Bahamas, and Bermuda, as per climate experts.

One of the most crucial elements of monitoring Hurricane Lee is predicting its ultimate path and the potential damage it might cause.

It’s believed that the hurricane will be steered by a high-pressure ridge in the Atlantic, which is why the NHC continues to provide updates on Lee’s progression.
