TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
Lingering moisture and instability in the wake of a tropical wave will cause a few cloudy periods and some scattered showers over some of the islands of the region tonight.
Another tropical wave located a few hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles is moving westward near 20 mph or 19 km/h. Unfavorable upper-level conditions along with Saharan dust is limiting shower activity associated with this wave.
A third tropical wave located over the central tropical Atlantic is moving westward near 15 mph or 24 km/h.
The plume of Saharan dust is expected to reduce shower activity and visibility over the Eastern Caribbean region during the next couple of days. — SOURCE: St. Lucia Met. Services
