Low pressure area being monitored
THE ISLANDS OF THE LESSER ANTILLES and the north-eastern Caribbean are being advised to monitor the low pressure area which is approaching the region.
The latest advisory from the National Hurricane Centre says the elongated area of low pressure could develop gradually as it moves towards the west-northwest at ten to 15 miles per hour.
The area is accompanied by disorganised shower and thunderstorm activity, and is located several hundred miles east of the southern Windward Islands.
Meanwhile, the tropical wave which is about 1 000 miles east of Lesser Antilles is not expected to develop more at this stage.
This wave is also moving west-northwest about ten miles an hour and also has disorganised showers and thunderstorms. However, it is not expected to develop as it begins to interact with the other system located to the west. (SAT)
