TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
Moisture and instability associated with a fast-moving tropical wave, located a few hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles, will cause cloudiness, showers and thunderstorms over the islands during the next 24 hours. This wave has a low chance of development during the next 48 hours.
A second tropical wave located over the Central Tropical Atlantic is moving westward near 15 mph or 24 km/h.
Another tropical wave located over the far Eastern Tropical Atlantic is moving westward at 15 mph or 24 km/h. Environmental conditions are expected to become more conducive for the development of a tropical depression during the middle-to-latter part of this week while the system moves across the central tropical Atlantic.
