Weather Outlook for Dominica and the Lesser Antilles, Issued: 6:00 AM on Wednesday, August 10, 2011

A tropical wave which moved across the island chain is expected to maintain an increase in moisture levels during the earlier part of today. A weak 1013mb low pressure center is presently trailing this wave. Most of the significant convection associated with this wave is expected across the Northern Windward and Leeward Islands. As a result, a few periods of cloudiness with a few showers can be expected across the island during the day followed by a gradual drying out of the atmosphere with only localised showers expected.

An area of disturbed weather associated with a tropical wave has formed about 390 miles southwest of the southern Cape Verde Islands or about 2000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. Some slow development of this system is possible over the next couple of days as it moves westward at about 10 to 15 mph. This system has a low chance…10 percent…of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

We will continue to monitor the progress of this system as it moves westwards.
