Weak wave reaches the Caribbean

Disturbance forty one is a non-tropical low in the north central Atlantic, way north of our area of interest. This should remain a non-tropical low, and will be absorbed by a frontal boundary to the north.

Disturbance forty three has at last made the Leeward Islands as a tropical wave and is dashing west into the Caribbean at a pointless 22 knots which will put paid to any chances of development - already doubtful due to upper level shear anyway. Development is not expected other than enhanced showers and storms for Trinidad and the southern Windward Islands over the next 24 to 36 hours. The previously magnificent but latterly rather flaccid and useless tropical wave over west Africa is likely to emerge tonight or early on Saturday, but is not expected to develop as it moves into the Atlantic.

Stand easy.
