TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
Showers and thunderstorm activity associated with a tropical wave located about 150 miles or 241 kilometres east of the Windward Islands has become less organised. However, this system is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall, gusty winds and isolated thunderstorms over portions of the Lesser Antilles, from today into tomorrow as it moves westward near 15 mph or 24 km/h.
Rainfall 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.
Two other tropical waves located over the central and far eastern tropical Atlantic are both moving westward near 15 mph or 24 km/h.
