Some locations have received more than 3 inches of rain since last week and some locations could receive another 1-2 inches through Wednesday.
The recent rain is not in association with any organized tropical system and tropical development in the Caribbean is not anticipated through this week.

This same pattern will persist through Wednesday before drier air enters the Caribbean by late week.
