The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite called GOES-13 captured an image of this low on June 9 at 1740 UTC (1:40 p.m. EDT) System 94L, and the cloud cover appears centered over eastern Cuba and Jamaica while the outer portion of the low stretches over Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and now south Florida. The elongated low has a minimum central pressure of 1001 millibars and is centered near 20 North and 83 West.

During the afternoon of June 9, Flash Flood warnings were in effect in Puerto Rico for the municipalities of Guaynabo, Carolina and San Juan until 4 p.m. AST. According to the National Weather Service website, "at 1:54 p.m. AST National Weather Service doppler radar indicated that heavy rain continues over the warned area and the Piedras River has overflowed its banks and will flood a number of streets." An Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory is also in effect for many municipalities.
The forecast calls for showers and thunderstorms across western and northwestern Puerto Rico over the next few days. These showers will bring heavy rainfall and local flooding is possible. In addition to Puerto Rico, the rainfall is also now affecting the U.S/U.K. Virgin Islands and Leeward Islands north of 16 North and east of 67 West.
The GOES series of satellites are operated by NOAA, and the NASA GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. created the image of today's low pressure area. The NASA GOES Project also creates animations of GOES satellite imagery and that can be found at: http://goes.gsfc.nasa.gov/.
System 94L continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms that are bringing heavy rainfall to Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Cuba. The low is expected to slowly move northeast.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
