TROPICAL WAVE EAST OF THE LESSER ANTILLES

September 15, 2012627Views

According to the National Hurricane Centre, a Tropical Wave located about
700 miles east of The Windward Islands continues to produce disorganized shower
and thunderstorm activity. Upper-Level winds appear to strong to support
significant development of the wave during the next couple of days.

 

This system currently has a low chance of 10% of becoming a Tropical Cyclone
during the next 48 hour as it moves westward at about 15mph.

 

Locally heavy rains associated with the wave could begin to move across
portions of the Lesser Antilles Sunday into Monday.

 

Based on the present forecast, it is not apparent how much of the wave would
affect the VI however; present projections expect the wave to produce
approximately an inch of rain in a 24 hour period. The Department of Disaster Management
(DDM) will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates accordingly. Please
