In the tropics, the low in the central Atlantic has dissipated, but we’re now watching a tropical wave a few hundred miles east of the Windward Islands.  While the National Hurricane Center gives this wave a low chance of developing into a tropical depression, it will bring gusty winds and heavy rain to portions of the Windward Islands on Thursday and Friday.
