SYNOPSIS for the SW N Atlantic including the Bahamas  333 PM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024  

 A large trough extends from 31N64W to the  southeastern Bahamas and to the Windward Passage. The trough will  continue to produce scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms  affecting the southeastern Bahamas, Hispaniola and Puerto Rico  through Thu as possible weak low pressure forms along it and  tracks northeastward. Decaying northerly swell across the waters  impacting Puerto Rico southward to the Leeward islands will linger  through early Wed afternoon. High pressure will build over the  waters north of about 20N later this week allowing for generally  tranquil marine conditions. A cold front may move over the waters  east of northeast Florida late Sun night. Scattered showers and  thunderstorms could precede this front.
