An area of low pressure located about 910 miles east of the Lesser Antilles continues to move on a quick westward track on Tuesday afternoon. While significant strengthening is not expected, this system could briefly become a tropical storm within the next 24 hours.
The system is expected to reach the Lesser Antilles on Thursday. An area of strong west-southwest upper-level winds over the eastern Caribbean will create a zone of shear that should cause this system to become less organized and could destroy much of the organization on Thursday and Friday as it moves into the eastern and northern Caribbean. Interests in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progression and development of this system.
Elsewhere across the Atlantic basin, there are a few tropical waves moving west at an average pace of 6 degrees longitude per day. No development is expected with any of these tropical waves within the next 48 hours.
