Elsewhere, an easterly wave that exited the African coast yesterday is showing signs of development. It is currently centered about 350 miles southeast of the Cape Verde Islands, and about 2800 miles east of the Windward Islands.
It is likely going to track toward the west-northwest over the next 5 days as it gradually organizes. It could become Tropical Depression 7, and then the next name on the list is Grace. Just for reference (this isn't a forecast), the average easterly wave travel time from this location to the Lesser Antilles is roughly seven days.
