A tropical wave located near 18 degrees north, 61 degrees west, or near the Leeward Islands, has developed a well-defined low-level circulation, but it is being affected by strong wind shear. This is causing the thunderstorm activity to be displaced well to the east of the centre. The tropical wave is expected to generate some unsettled conditions across the British Virgin Islands for the next 24hrs.
