TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
The Atlantic high-pressure system will generate light to moderate easterly winds across the Eastern Caribbean region during the next 24 hours. A drier and more stable atmosphere will limit shower activity over the region during the next two days.
A tropical wave located over the central Tropical Atlantic is moving westward near 17 mph or 28 km/h. This wave is expected to cause an increase in cloudiness with some scattered showers and possibly isolated thunderstorms over the Eastern Caribbean region from Thursday.
Two other tropical waves located over the eastern and far eastern Tropical Atlantic are both moving westward near 15 mph or 24 km/h.
