Antilles continues to produce disorganized showers and a few
thunderstorms.  This system is moving westward at 15 to 20 mph,
and it is expected to cross into the Caribbean Sea on Friday.
Upper-level winds are forecast to become a little more conducive
for development during the next several days, and interests in the
Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of this system.

during the next few days before upper-level winds become less
conducive over the weekend.  This system is expected to move
west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph during the next several days.
