Over the Atlantic basin on this Friday night, there’s a tropical wave located about 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles, moving westward at 20-25 mph. Associated shower activity is poorly organized and, given the fast motion of the system, any development should be slow to occur.

Regardless of development, it’ll bring showers and gusty winds to portions of the Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the eastern Caribbean Sea during the weekend. The wave is expected to be in the western Caribbean Sea by the middle of next week, where conditions could become more conducive for development.

Also, there’s a tropical wave and a low pressure system centered a couple of hundred miles south of Cabo Verde. The shower and thunderstorm activity associated with it continues to show signs of organization.

Although this system does not have a well-defined circulation at this time, some development is still possible during the next day or two before the disturbance encounters a less favorable environment over the central tropical Atlantic early next week.
