TROPICAL WAVE UPDATE

June 21, 202195Views

The National Hurricane Centre at 2pm issued the following advisory:

A tropical wave located about 750 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands is producing disorganized showers and a few thunderstorms.  Although shower activity has diminished some this afternoon, recent satellite-derived surface wind data indicate that the wave has become better defined since yesterday. Some additional development of this disturbance will be possible during the next couple of days before upper-level winds become less conducive for further organization by Thursday.  The system is expected to move westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph.
