OF THE WAVE AXIS.

TROPICAL WAVE EXTENDS FROM 22N60W TO 12N64W IS MOVING W AT 15-20
KT. THE WAVE IS EASY TO IDENTIFY ON THE LATEST SATELLITE IMAGERY
AND EXHIBITS A CLASSIC WAVE PATTERN. THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANT

PUERTO RICO FROM THE EAST.

TROPICAL WAVE EXTENDS ALONG 79W FROM 11N-21N AND IS MOVING W AT
