DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 PM AST (0300 UTC), the disturbance was centered near
latitude 8.7 North, longitude 52.8 West.  The system is moving 
toward the west near 17 mph (28 km/h).  A westward or 
west-northwestward motion with some increase in forward speed is 
expected through Thursday.  On the forecast track, the system will 
pass near or over portions of the southern Windward Islands by late 
Tuesday or Tuesday night, and move over the southern Caribbean Sea 
or near the northern coast of Venezuela on Wednesday and Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days if 
the disturbance remains over water.

Conditions appear conducive for development if the disturbance 
remains over water, and it will likely become a tropical storm 
before reaching the southern Windward Islands or while moving 
westward across the southern Caribbean Sea.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km)
to the north of the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb (29.80 inches).
