TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
Moisture and instability associated with Tropical Storm Josephine will cause scattered showers and possibly isolated thunderstorms over the Eastern Caribbean region during the next 24 hours.
At 5:00 am today, the centre of Tropical Storm Josephine was located near latitude 18.9 north, longitude 58.4 west or about 310 miles or 500 kilometres east of the northern Leeward Islands. Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph or 75 km/h with higher gusts. Little change in strength is expected through today. After that, Josephine is expected to weaken as it encounters unfavorable upper-level winds.
Josephine is moving toward the west-northwest near 15 mph or 24 km/h, and this general motion is expected to continue for the next day or two. On the forecast track, the centre of Josephine is expected to pass to the northeast of the Leeward Islands over the weekend.
Interests in the Leeward Islands should continue to closely monitor the progress of this system.
Josephine does not pose a direct threat to Saint Lucia and the rest of the
Windward Islands, however, the Saint Lucia Meteorological Services will continue
to monitor the progress of the system.
A tropical wave located over the Central Tropical Atlantic is moving westward near 15 mph or 24 km/h.
