Tropical wave becoming more organised

A tropical wave located in the Eastern Atlantic is slowly getting better organised and could develop into a tropical depression within the next 24 to 48 hours.

It is tracking in a generally westward direction around 15 to 20 mph.

Although dry mid-level air continues to inhibit the development of the system, conditions are expected to lead to further development from early this week.

There is considerable spread in Model guidance on the forecast track with some of the guidance bringing the system through the Northern Windwards/Southern Leewards later this week.

In response to this, the forecast track cone has been shifted slightly farther south than the previous statement.

There are no watches or warnings in effect for Barbados. (PR/SAT)
