Tropical cyclone not a threat for carnival

An area of low pressure which has developed off the African coast poses an 80 per cent chance of becoming a tropical depression, but it is forecast to pass north of the Leeward islands in the next few days.
Forecaster at the Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Service, Cecil Matthew, told OBSERVER media, that the system which is moving in a north-westerly direction at 15-20 miles per hour could bring tropical storm conditions our way by about Thursday of next week.
“If the system keeps that general direction, there could be bands of showers and tropical storm/depression conditions,” he said. 
A tropical wave is currently producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the central and eastern Caribbean Sea.  This disturbance is expected to move away from the islands by tomorrow.
According to the forecaster, another tropical wave will move in on Monday and produce some amounts of rain.
