The Saint Lucia Met Services said in its 6 a.m. report on Wednesday, August 16 that a tropical wave will continue to bring an increase in cloudiness, showers and thunderstorms over the Lesser Antilles during the next 24 hours.
Below is the forecast:
“A broad area of low pressure located about 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles is producing disorganised showers and a few thunderstorms. This system is moving westward at about 18 mph or 30 km/h. Environmental conditions are expected to be marginally conducive for slow development of this system during the next few days. This system is expected to cross into the Caribbean Sea on Friday.
“Showers and thunderstorms continue to show some signs of organization in another area of low pressure located over the eastern tropical Atlantic. Gradual development of this system is possible before weekend. This system is expected to move west northwestward at about 18 mph or 30 km/h during the next several days.
“Another tropical wave near the west coast of Africa is producing a large area of disorganised showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development of this wave while it moves westward to west-northwestward at about 15 mph or 24 km/h during the next several days.
The Met Office will continue to monitor the progress of these systems as they move across the tropical Atlantic.”
