Moisture and instability ahead of an approaching trough system will cause some scattered showers over the Lesser Antilles this afternoon and tonight.
A trough system located a few hundred miles east of the region is drifting slowly westward. This system is expected to cause cloudy to overcast skies, scattered showers, some of which may be heavy, gusty winds and thunderstorms over the islands from tomorrow morning.
Tropical cyclone formation is not expected over the Tropical Atlantic during the next five days.
