Saint Lucia is monitoring two tropical waves – one in the Central Atlantic and the other in the far Eastern Atlantic, the Meteorological Services says.
“Presently they do not show much signs of development over the next two days, but the Met Service will continue to monitor as they get closer. As you know tropical waves give quite a bit of rainfall at times when they are enhanced so as in any system we will continue to keep persons updated,” Meteorological Services Director Andre Joyeux told St Lucia Times.
And he explained that development of the systems is possible.
“The last time we had about four inches affecting us it was actually moisture that was lingering after a tropical wave that was enhanced by an upper level trough,” Joyeux recalled.
“The tropics is very volatile. Any little moisture, once you get the winds turning – you have all the ingredients present, a tropical system can develop,” he observed.
