These islands, as well as St. Lucia, Martinique and Dominica, can expect tropical storm conditions.

Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area by Thursday afternoon. Because hurricane preparedness activities become hard once winds reach tropical storm force, the Warning is issued 36 hours in advance of the onset of tropical storm force winds.
