TROPICAL WAVE BRINGS THUNDERSHOWERS TO V.I.

A westward-moving tropical wave located across eastern Puerto Rico was the main contributor Saturday to the thundershowers across the Virgin Islands.
The wave became stronger overnight when it left the Lesser Antilles and entered the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Considerable cloudiness, with numerous showers and thundershowers, covered a large area of the Eastern Caribbean on Saturday.
The wave was to be an all-day event for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, according to Knight Quality Stations meteorologist Alan Archer.
Archer predicted some improvement in the weather beginning early Saturday night. By Sunday, he said, "we'll see breezy and hazy conditions."
Another tropical wave as yet far out in the Atlantic is expected to reach the Eastern Caribbean late Tuesday night or early on Wednesday, Archer said.
