Tropical wave approaches Lesser Antilles
The National Hurricane Center is tonight monitoring a tropical wave, which is expected to move towards the Lesser Antilles over the next several days.
The Miami-based NHC said the wave is accompanied by a broad area of low pressure, and is located several hundred miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.
“Environmental conditions are expected to become conducive for gradual development, and a tropical depression could form while the system approaches the Lesser Antilles and moves into the Caribbean Sea by the middle of next week,” the NHC said.
Meanwhile Tropical Storm Karl, which is located 230 miles east northeast of Bermuda, is expected to become a powerful post-tropical cyclone tomorrow. The storm is currently moving east-northeast at 23 miles per hour.
A third weather system, Lisa, located about 1200 miles northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, has weakened back to a Tropical Depression. The NHC says it is expected to become a remnant low tonight.
