Eastern Caribbean Outlook
Tuesday: The tropical wave currently along 51/53W is expected to gradually affect the island chain by the evening. Barbados and Trinidad can expected fair skies becoming increasingly cloudy by late afternoon as activity associated with this feature begins to affect the islands.
Weak upper divergence to the east of the island chain may provide marginal enhancement to the wave as it approaches the Windward islands. Meanwhile, the remainder of the island will remain under the influence of the high pressure system. As the night progresses, the tropical wave will be affecting Barbados and the southern Windward islands, where mostly cloudy skies and scattered shower activity are likely.
