The National Hurricane Center is tracking a disturbance in the Atlantic. 

A tropical wave located several hundred miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing showers and thunderstorms in the Caribbean with the possibility of slight development of this system during the next day or so while it moves slowly westward.

After that time, environmental conditions are expected to become less conducive for development. It has a low chance (10%) of developing into a tropical depression within five days.

The Cayman Islands National Weather Service reports that today there will be partly cloudy skies with a 30 per cent chance of showers. Winds will be east to southeast at 10 to 15 knots. Waves will be slight to moderate with wave heights of 2 to 4 feet.

Tomorrow there will be partly cloudy skies with a 40 per cent chance of showers with possible thunder. Winds will be east to southeast at 10 to 15 knots. Waves will be moderate with wave heights of 3 to 5 feet.

The National Hurricane Center isn't tracking any other disturbances in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea or the Atlantic Ocean.
