TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
The Atlantic high-pressure system will generate moderate to brisk easterly winds and above normal seas around the Eastern Caribbean for the next few days.

A plume of Saharan dust will continue to reduce shower activity, visibility, and air quality over our region during the next couple of days.

A weak tropical wave is currently over the Lesser Antilles moving westward near 20 mph or 31 km/h. No significant rainfall is expected with the passage of this wave due to the presence of Saharan dust.

A second tropical wave located over the central tropical Atlantic is moving westward near 17 mph or 28 km/h.

Tropical cyclone formation is not expected over the Tropical Atlantic during the next five days.
