Scattered showers and isolated tstorms are elsewhere north of 15N between the Virgin Islands and Haiti. Upper-level ridging and subsidence are covering much of the central Caribbean.

The surface trough over Hispaniola will continue to move west- northwest, bringing enhanced rainfall to Hispaniola through today. The rains will affect eastern and central Cuba through early Saturday. A Caribbean tropical wave along 80W will reach Central America Fri. A tropical wave along 55W will move across the Tropical N Atlantic and eastern Caribbean through Sat night. Fresh to strong trade winds are expected in the south central Caribbean through Sat morning. A tropical wave in the Atlantic along 38W will reach the Tropical N Atlantic early next week.

INVEST 96L is still at 70% but gradual development is possible during the next couple of days while it moves west-northwestward towards the Lesser Antilles at about 15 mph. A tropical depression is likely to form by early next week several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

The easterly Caribbean winds are back from the east, with only a small amount of cloud in them. Very little trace of any high level cloud. A little rain down south, mainly off shore, a tiny bit near Belize city earlier.

Looks like today will be mainly sunny, with clouds building during the morning, a small chance of a few rain showers.
