Shower activity continues to become better organized in association with a tropical wave located over the eastern Caribbean Sea. Conditions are conducive for further development of this system, and a tropical depression is likely to form this weekend or early next week as the system moves into the central and western Caribbean Sea. The chance of development is at 70% over the next two days and 80% over the next five days.

The models continue to show a pretty decent circulation by Sunday and into next week. As of now, this system does not look to bring impacts to the United States and dives to the southwest, but that can change.
