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.
Tropical cyclone formation is not expected over the Tropical Atlantic during the next five days. – SOURCE: St. Lucia Met. Services
