A weak tropical wave located a few hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles is moving westward near 17 mph or 28 km/h. This wave is expected to cause cloudiness, showers and possibly isolated thunderstorms mainly over the southern Windward Islands from late tomorrow.
Another tropical wave located over the Central Tropical Atlantic is moving westward near 15 mph or 24 km/h. Some slow development of this system is expected during the next couple of days.
