Further east, a second active tropical wave associated with a low pressure area, is located over the central Tropical Atlantic. The system moving westward near 20 mph or 31 km/h and expected to produce heavy showers and thunderstorms over the Windward Islands, from Friday into Saturday. Environmental conditions appear favorable for development and this system may be at least a tropical depression by the time it gets to the islands.
