A strong tropical wave coupled with a broad area of low level pressure will generate an increase in cloudiness, scattered showers and thunderstorms across the Lesser Antilles over the next few days. The system has a high chance of developing into tropical depression or tropical storm in the next day or two as it moves west-northwestward near 17 to 23 mph or 28 to 37 km/h.
Interests in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of this system.
