.....TROPICAL WAVES EAST OF 70 WEST.....

The axis of a tropical wave is near 26W from just west
of the Cabo Verde Islands southward, moving W at 15 to
20 kt. Scattered moderate and isolated strong convection
is noted from 01N to 09N between 25W and 35W.

The axis of a tropical wave is near 50W from 15N southward,
moving W at 15 to 20 kt. Scattered moderate and isolated
strong convection is noted from 07N to 11N between 43W
and 53W.

...CARIBBEAN SEA & LOCAL REGION...

The ridge of the Atlantic high pressure system will support
moderate to fresh, at times strong to near gale force winds
in gusts. Reduced moisture levels will account for generally
dry weather to prevail. Saharan Dust is expected to persist
across the region over the next few days resulting in a
reduction in visibility. People with respiratory illness
are advised to take the necessary precautions to avoid
complications.

Marine conditions: slight seas on the protected sites
and moderate seas on the south sites are in place.
Generally moderate seas are in place over the east to
northwest coastal regions with seas in the range of
4 to 6 to up to 7 feet. Operators of small vessels
are advised to exercise caution over the east to
northwest coastal regions.
