A tropical wave located about a little more than 500 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands continues to produce a large area of disorganized cloudiness and thunderstorms.

Environmental conditions are forecast to be marginally conducive, and some limited development could occur during the next day or so while the system moves west-northwest at about 15 mph.

Another tropical wave located over the eastern Caribbean Sea is producing a large area of disorganized cloudiness and showers over portions of the Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

Unfavorable upper-level winds are expected to limit any development over the next day or so, but environmental conditions could become a little more conducive for some development of this system when it is located near the Bahamas around Wednesday.
