The National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) is monitoring a tropical wave located about 1100 miles east of the Lesser Antilles which is moving westward at 20-25 mph.
The associated shower activity is poorly organized, and given the fast motion of the system any development should be slow to occur. Regardless of development, this system will likely bring showers and gusty winds to portions of the Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the eastern Caribbean Sea during the weekend.
By the middle of next week, the wave is expected to be in the western Caribbean Sea (OUR REGION), where conditions could be more conducive for development. IT POSES NO THREAT TO BELIZE OVER THIS WEEKEND. THIS EARLY WARNING IS DUE TO SPEED AND DIRECTION-MOVING WESTWARDLY AT 20-25 MPH
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent
The NEMO Emergency Hotline is 936.
We will provide an update before or by early next week Monday if the system develops and becomes a threat.
