Tropical Wave to Produce Showers and Thunderstorms Over Island Chain Today

SLUMET: A tropical wave located about 800 miles east of the Lesser Antilles is moving westward near 23 mph or 37 km/h. This system is expected to produce showers and thunderstorms over the island chain from tonight. A second tropical wave located over the far eastern Tropical Atlantic is also moving westward near 17 mph or 28 km/h.

NOAA: Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a tropical wave located about 600 miles east of the Lesser Antilles has increased since yesterday.  However, environmental conditions are only marginally conducive, and any development of this system should be slow to occur while it moves westward at 15 to 20 mph.  This disturbance is expected to bring locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds to portions of the Lesser Antilles beginning later today through Sunday night.
