FORECAST FOR THE LESSER ANTILLES
Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with scattered showers over the Leeward Islands. Elsewhere, fair skies, becoming cloudy at times with a few scattered showers.
The Atlantic High Pressure System will continue to generate light to moderate easterly to east southeasterly winds across the Eastern Caribbean region during the next few days.
A weak frontal system will cause cloudiness and showers over the Leeward
Islands. The lower atmosphere over the remainder of the lesser Antilles is sufficiently moist and unstable to cause a few showers to develop over that area during the forecast period.
A surface trough several hundred miles east of the lesser Antilles is drifting slowly westward.
