NHC Monitors Tropical Wave

(LOOP NEW CARIBBEAN) – A tropical wave located over the eastern Caribbean Sea is becoming better organised.

The US National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said conditions are conducive for further development of this system and a tropical depression is likely to form this weekend or early next week as the system moves into the central and western Caribbean Sea.

NHC has given the system a high (70 percent) chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a high (80 percent) chance during the next five days.
