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

An eastern Atlantic Ocean tropical wave has its axis along 23W from
18N southward, moving W around 15 kt. Scattered moderate isolated
strong convection is seen from 16N-20N between 18W-24W.


A loose pressure gradient is producing light to moderate winds
across the region. A weak surface trough extends from the coast
of Venezuela to the Leeward Islands and is inducing some moisture
in the lower levels. This will account for a few widely scattered
showers with locally an isolated thunderstorm. Long period swells
from the North- Northeast induced by Major Hurricane Teddy, will
continue to impact tropical Atlantic waters through Monday into
