Weak unstable conditions in the wake of a tropical wave, will cause some scattered showers and possibly isolated thunderstorms over the Lesser Antilles during the forecast period.
A weak area of low pressure, associated with a tropical wave located
about 900 miles east of the Lesser Antilles is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. This system is moving westward near 15 mph or 24 km/h and some slight development is possible today or Wednesday, before upper-level winds become unfavourable for tropical cyclone formation. This system is expected to affect the region by Thursday.
Another tropical wave located over the eastern tropical Atlantic is moving westward near 12 mph or 19 km/h. Some slow development of this system is expected during the next few days as it moves westward over the tropical Atlantic.
