TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
Tropical Storm Isaias will continue to affect Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos Islands and the southeastern Bahamas during the next 24 hours. The storm is moving toward the northwest near 20 mph or 31 km/h and does not pose a direct threat to the Lesser Antilles. However, moisture and instability trailing this system will cause occasional cloudiness, showers and possibly isolated thunderstorms mainly over the Virgin and Leeward Islands today.
A tropical wave located over the central tropical Atlantic is moving westward near 15 mph or 24 km/h.
A second tropical wave located over the eastern tropical Atlantic is producing an area of concentrated showers and thunderstorms. This system is moving westward near 17 mph or 28 km/h and has a low chance of development during the next five days.
