Barbados monitoring tropical wave

The Barbados Meteorological Services is monitoring the progress of a tropical wave in the Atlantic.
The wave was located approximately 290 km to the east of Barbados around 5 a.m., on Saturday.
The Met Office says there are no tropical storm watches or warnings in effect for the island at this time, but as the tropical wave slowly makes its way towards Barbados and the rest of the Eastern Caribbean, associated activity is forecast to affect the region from today. 
The country has been put on alert for a wet weekend with overcast skies, showers and some thunderstorm activity.
Current models suggest that the most intense convection associated with the feature may occur tonight.
Rainfall accumulations of two to four inches, and possibly isolated higher amounts, are forecast over the weekend, which may prompt the issuance of flash-flood watches or warnings at short notice
Although this feature is projected to be a strong tropical wave as it moves across Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, the probability of development into a Tropical Depression or Storm is currently very low.
