TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
The Atlantic High Pressure System is expected to generate a moderate easterly wind flow across the Lesser Antilles during the next 24 hours.
Saharan dust will continue to reduce visibility around our region for the next couple of day.
A weak tropical wave located a few hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles is moving westward near 17 mph or 28 km/h. No significant rainfall is expected with the passage of this wave.
A tropical wave located several hundred miles west southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands is moving west northwestward at 15 to 20 mph. Some slow development of this system is possible during the next 2 to 3 days. Thereafter, environmental conditions become less conducive for development.
A third tropical wave is located near the west coast of Africa and it is moving westward near 12 mph or 19 km/h.
