Continued Development in the Tropics

Posted: Updated:

Thursday, August 8

There is a weak LPS (Low Pressure System) that is producing a small area of cloudiness arain over the SE Caribbean Sea. Environmental conditions are not conducive for development. This LPS will continue to move Westward at 10-15mph during the next several days.
This system has a LOW chance (<10%) of becoming a Tropical Cyclone during the next 48 hours.

This system is in an environment that has a lot of moisture and very little wind shear. These two features combined are enhancing the probability of scattered, moderate convection and increased shower & thunderstorm activity over affected areas. This system is expected to continue moving Westward during the next 48 hours generating showers and thunderstorms over the Caribbean. However, significant development will not be expected even during the next 5 days.


Elsewhere, in the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean, No tropical development is expected during the next 48 hours.
