Tropical Disturbance Headed Towards Windward Islands

(NHC) – A large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms located about 700 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands is associated with a tropical wave.

Some development of this system is possible over the next couple of days while it moves west-northwestward at around 15 mph toward the Windward Islands.

By late Saturday, unfavourable environmental conditions should limit the chances for additional development while the system moves over the Eastern Caribbean Sea.

Regardless of development, this system is likely to bring locally heavy rainfall to portions of the Lesser Antilles on Friday and Saturday.
