Meanwhile, Iota is still bringing life-threatening storm surge, flash flooding and catastrophic winds to Nicaragua, Honduras and Central America.
Elsewhere in the tropics, a broad area of low pressure could form in a couple of days over the southwest Caribbean Sea.
Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for slow development, and a tropical depression could form by the weekend while the system moves slowly to the west or southwest across the southwestern Caribbean Sea.
Regardless of development, areas of heavy rain are possible during the next several days from Nicaragua southward across Central America and into Colombia.
These rains could cause new flooding concerns, especially across previously inundated areas.
This area has a medium potential of development over the next five days.
