SYNOPSIS:    

The strengthened Atlantic high-pressure ridge continues to generate brisk winds across the region. Moisture being transported in these brisk trade winds may trigger some passing showers across the local area.

Marine conditions will be slight to moderate for the next several days.

STATE OF THE SEA:  Slight to Moderate            WAVES/SWELLS: 4 to 5 feet  

SPECIAL FEATURES: An area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms, associated with a tropical wave located a few hundred miles south-southeast of St Maarten, is unlikely to develop. Regardless of development this disturbance could bring heavy showers to the Southern Windward islands.

THIS DISTURBANCE DOES NOT POSE A DIRECT THREAT TO ST MAARTEN.

OUTLOOK through Friday midday: Partly cloudy, hazy and breezy with isolated showers.
