Synopsis: An area of disturbed weather embedded in a tropical wave is approximately 264 nautical  miles east of the Southern Windward Islands. This area is showing signs of organization and  additional development is expected within the next few days. Thus, there is a medium (70%)  chance that it will develop into a tropical depression within the next 48 hours as the system moves  westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph across the eastern and central Caribbean Sea. 

Weather models suggest that the southern windward islands will experience the effects of this  system as early as late Wednesday morning. 

Forecast for the State of Grenada: Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique can expect cloudy  to overcast conditions with moderate to heavy showers and thundershowers, accompanied by gusty  winds up to 35mph on Wednesday. As a result, the Met Office has issued a warning for a medium  chance of flooding and landslide in vulnerable areas, a high wind advisory and a marine advisory  remains in effect.
