The Atlantic High-Pressure System will continue to be the dominant feature across our islands. Patches of low-level clouds moving along an easterly wind flow are likely to produce occasionally cloudy skies and few brief showers during the next 24 hours.
Thereafter, a tropical wave presently located near 48 degrees west latitude (800 miles east of St. Vincent and the Grenadines), is expected across our area by late Friday into Saturday. Due to a dry and stable mid to upper-level atmosphere, only some scattered showers are anticipated.
Easterly trade winds ranging between 20 km/h to 35 km/h should continue during the forecast period.
Slight to moderate easterly sea swells are expected with swells peaking near 2.0 meters (7.0 feet)
The analysis also suggests a layer of Saharan dust haze moving into the area by late Saturday.
