Live Blog: Eyes on TS Gonzalo as it heads towards the Caribbean

A Hurricane watch is currently in place for Barbados and St Vincent and the Grenadines as Tropical Storm Gonzalo makes its way west across the Atlantic Ocean. 

In its 2pm update on Thursday, the National Hurricane Centre (NHC) noted a slight weakening of the storm and also said that the centre of the storm was farther south than originally estimated. 

The NHC had previously anticipated Gonzalo becoming a hurricane by Thursday afternoon but they have now revised their forecast to Gonzalo strengthening into a hurricane by Friday morning. 

Gonzalo is still expected to make landfall on the islands by Saturday.
