Barbados Meteorological Services is closely monitoring an area of disturbed weather located near 11N 35W (2 700 km or 1 690 miles to the east).
A bulletin today said there is no threat to Barbados at this time.
Although the system has become better organised during the night, convection remains poorly organised primarily due to the broad circulation and dry air wrapping in from the north east of the system.
There are no watches or warnings in effect.
“As the system progresses westward, some slow but gradual development is forecast and a tropical depression is likely to develop over the next day or two.”
Currently there is a fairly good consensus in the model guidance that the system will track westward and then west northwestward over the next few days. It is expected this track would take the centre and associated cyclone winds closer to the Leeward islands by Thursday, July 30.
The public is advised to monitor updates. The next one will be at 6 p.m. today. (PR)
