TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
A tropical wave located about 240 miles or 446 kilometres east-southeast Saint Lucia is moving toward the west northwest near 15 mph or 24 km/h. This system is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall, gusty winds and isolated thunderstorms mainly over the central and northern portions of the Lesser Antilles including Saint Lucia, from overnight Monday into Tuesday.
Further development of this system over the islands is unlikely at this time.
Showers over the past few days in Saint Lucia, has resulted in the soils being near or at saturation, therefore, any additional rainfall will increase the risk of flooding and landslides in areas prone to these hazards. Persons are advised to be extremely vigilant and cautious, during the passage of this system.
