An elongated area of low pressure presently located near 10N 45W or about 1100 miles ESE of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, has been generating widespread disorganized showers over the past 24 hours.  There is reduced (40%) chance of a depression forming east of the Lesser Antilles, as the area of low pressure moves west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.

Thus, residents are urged to monitor the progress of this system and any updates issued from the St.Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Service.
