Weak tropical wave in the Caribbean.....

The last advisory on "Barry" was issued Thu. evening but the remnants continue to produce very heavy rain over parts of Eastern Mexico well to the south of Texas.

The rest of the Gulf & Caribbean are remarkably quiet & even clear of much in the way of cloud cover.  A tropical wave continues to move W/NW but convection has died down considerably, mostly because of its separation of an upper level low over the SW Atlantic.  But the wave is still evident by a few showers & more notably from surface observations (see the map at the bottom).  The wave will turn more northwest this weekend eventually moving into the Gulf of Mexico.  Convection should occasionally flare but significant development of this wave is not likely.

T'storms northeast of Jacksonville over the Western Atlantic continue on the southern end of a cold front - no development expected though if the cluster persists, weak low pressure could eventually emerge.  No indication of such from forecast models at this time.

The low pressure off the coast of Central America in the E. Pacific (see map above) has a good chance to gradually develop into a tropical cyclone & move northwest.  The E. Pacific will become more active during the next 1-2 weeks .... this more active "regime" will probably spread into the Atlantic Basin during the first 1-2 weeks of July.
