thunderstorms throughout the southwest Caribbean. The earlier
described tropical wave in the central Caribbean is also producing
convection. Otherwise, dry weather prevails.
Low pressure will prevail into the weekend just N of Panama. A
tropical wave S of Hispaniola early this morning will pass S of
