National Weather Service details tropical system’s Gulf of Mexico impact

The National Weather Service is monitoring two tropical waves east of the Windward Islands.

The first wave is just east of the islands and is not expected to develop.

At this time, the Weather Service is not concerned with this system.

The second wave is between the Windward Islands and African coast and has a  90 percent chance to become a tropical cyclone, Meteorologist-in-Charge Andy Patrick said.

“This system is expected to move through the Carribean by this weekend with the potential for it to move into the Gulf of Mexico early next week,” Patrick said.

“There is a lot of uncertainty in the track and intensity of this system, so we will be sending daily tropical updates to keep you informed.”
