A Tropical Wave brought a few periods of showers and isolated thunderstorms, mainly in the Windwards and tonight, some scattered in the southern Leewards. 

Radar and IR imagery shows some clearing tonight but this will change by wee hours. The area of spin with 95L is still ESE of Barbados(4th pic) and will move into the Windwards Tuesday. 

Overnight a few showers can be expected and increasing towards sunrise. Some periods of heavy rainfall can be expected with a risk of isolated flooding.

On Wednesday, trailing moisture in ITCZ flow will affect mainly the Windwards and Trinidad. Gradual improvement will occur as drier air moves in earlier Wednesday in Leewards and then north WIndwards.

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Don, located over the central Atlantic.

Central Tropical Atlantic (AL95): An area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms about 700 miles east of the Windward Islands. 

Some slow development of this system is possible during the next couple of days while it moves westward across the tropical Atlantic and eastern Caribbean Sea. 

Environmental conditions are expected to become less conducive for development by the middle of the week. Interests in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of this system.

Eastern Caribbean Weather said, “Nothing major right now, thankfully but a few areas to keep an eye on as we finish up July and go toward August. There is one area near the Bahamas and up to the southeast coast that will need to be monitored later this week and into the weekend for potential tropical development.” 

 This Hurricane season it will be a fight between the wind shear and the very warm water temperatures. Wind shear can limit development and sometimes completely tear apart a tropical system but warm water temperatures are fuel for systems. The next named storms will be Emily and Franklin.
