A tropical wave located about 850 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands is producing a large area of cloudiness and thunderstorms. Slow development of this disturbance is possible over the next few days while the system moves west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph. By early next week, however, upper-level winds are expected to become less conducive for any significant development to occur when the system will be moving over the eastern Caribbean Sea.
