Tropical Update

Cloudiness and thunderstorms extending from northern Nicaragua and eastern Honduras northeastward across the Cayman Islands and Jamaica to eastern Cuba are associated with a trough of low pressure. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for some development on Friday and Saturday as the system moves slowly northward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea.  Strong upper-level winds associated with an approaching cold front will make conditions less favorable by Sunday.   Regardless of development, this system is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall over the Cayman Islands, Jamaica, and portions of Cuba during the next day or two. These rains are forecast to spread northward across portions of South Florida and the Keys on Saturday, and over the northwestern Bahamas Saturday night and Sunday.
