In the tropics, the wave about 200 miles east of the Lesser Antilles has a low chance of development as it encounters hostile upper level winds.  But it could bring heavy rain and gusty winds to some of the islands on Friday.   Elsewhere, we’re watching a strong wave emerging off the coast of Africa.  This wave has a medium chance of developing into a depression during the next 5 days.
