TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
Moist and unstable conditions associated with the remnants of Tropical Storm Gonzalo will cause cloudiness, showers and isolated thunderstorms over the southern Windward Islands.
At 5:00 pm today, the remnants of Tropical Storm Gonzalo were located near latitude 11.0 North, longitude 63.0 West. The remnants of Gonzalo are forecast to move generally westward across the southern Caribbean for the next couple of days.
Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph or 55 km/h with higher gusts. Gusty conditions associated with squalls will be possible as the remnants of Gonzalo move westward.
A tropical wave about 700 miles east of the Lesser Antilles is moving westward at about 21 mph or 33 km/h. This wave is expected to begin affecting the Eastern Caribbean islands tomorrow afternoon.
Another tropical wave over the eastern tropical Atlantic is moving westward at about 21 mph or 33 km/h. Some gradual development of this system is possible early next week, and a tropical depression could form in the western tropical Atlantic Ocean before it reaches the lesser Antilles.
