Further east, the easterly wave I first mentioned last Friday is now centered near 10N 40W, or about 1300 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. More models are coming onboard now with developing this wave, and they all agree on a track that brings it northwest, such that it steers north of the Lesser Antilles. There's plenty of time to keep an eye on this.
