In the Tropics:
A low pressure center located south east of the Leeward Islands is producing disorganized showers and storms. It has a 70% chance of developing in the next 2-5 days. Regardless of development, this system is expected to travel over most of the north Caribbean acting as a rainmaker to many islands.
Another disturbance is following behind with a lower chance of development, 20-30%. Conditions for development are looking less conducive than before. It is expected to travel west toward the Windward Islands.
Right now, it is a waiting game for the US, there are at least 5 days before any potential impacts. As the systems moves over the next 5 days, details will become more clear.
