Tropical Wave Continues to Move West

Tropical Wave Continues to Move West

July 12, 20191787Views

As of Friday morning, Tropical Wave/Invest 93L was located near 9N, 36W and moving westward near 15 mph. The system continues to feature a well-defined rotation. However, shower and thunderstorm activity remains relatively low. That being said, forecasters continue to think it has a 25 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression or weak tropical storm over the next few days as it tracks westward. It is expected to be near the Lesser Antilles by Monday. Conditions in the Caribbean are not expected to be favorable for further development. Therefore, it is expected to weaken when it reaches the Caribbean.

The Department of Disaster Management will continue to monitor the wave and provide updates when necessary.

Persons at home and abroad are encouraged to download the DDM’s Alert app in the Apple App store or Google Play store to receive updates of any hazards affecting the Territory.
