TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
The Inter-Tropical Convergent Zone (ITCZ) will cause a few scattered showers mainly over the central and southern portion of the Lesser Antilles during the next 24 hours.
An area of disturbed weather, located over the Central tropical Atlantic is moving westward near 17 mph or 28 km/h. A tropical depression is expected to form within the next two days. There is also a high chance of this system developing into a tropical storm within the next five days.
Another area of disturbed weather associated with a tropical wave is located over the Eastern Atlantic. Environmental conditions appear conducive for development during the next few days, and a tropical depression could form next week while the system moves slowly westward.
The Saint Lucia Meteorological Services will continue to closely monitor and provide updates on the progress of these systems.
