TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
Moist unstable conditions in the atmosphere over the northern and extreme southern portions of our region, will cause some cloudy periods with showers and possibly isolated thunderstorms over those areas during the next 24 hours.
An area of disturbed weather located a few hundred miles north of the northern Leeward Islands has the potential for some slow development over the next few days and a tropical depression could from later this week. However, the system is forecast to move northwestward over the open ocean and is not expected to pose a threat to our region.
Two tropical waves located over the Central and far Eastern Tropical Atlantic are both moving westward near 15 mph or 24 km/h.
