Weather Outlook for Dominica and the Lesser Antilles

Valid from: 12:00 PM on Saturday, September 22, 2018

A weak surface to low level trough is expected to produce occasional cloudiness and a few scattered showers across the area during the next 24 to 36 hours.

At 11am Tropical Depression No. 11 was located near 13.2N 53.8W or approximately 485 miles or 780 kilometers east of the Windward Islands. At this time, the projection is for the system to encounter unfavorable conditions and the depression is expected to dissipate east of the Lesser Antilles by Sunday night. The remnants associated with this system are likely to move across the island chain overnight Sunday into Monday.

Additionally, a tropical wave is expected to generate shower and thunderstorm activity across the area by Tuesday.

Meanwhile, another tropical wave with an associated area of low pressure became Tropical Storm Kirk at 11am this morning near 8.3N 23.8W over the Eastern Atlantic. Some strengthening is forecast through Sunday with little change in intensity forecast on Monday and Tuesday. Kirk is expected to approach the Lesser Antilles by Thursday.

Residents are advised to keep informed on these systems.

Moderate seas are expected during the next 24 hours with waves peaking near 5.0ft.
