Tropical weather outlook: A tropical wave about 500 miles East-Southeast of the Windward Islands continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Development if any of this system should be slow to occur during the next day or two while it moves West-Northwestward toward the Windward Islands. By late Saturday, unfavorable environmental conditions should limit the chances for additional development while the system moves over the Eastern Caribbean Sea. Formation chance through 5 days is low about 20 percent. Elsewhere tropical cyclone formation is not expected during the next 5 days
