The 15th tropical wave of the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season is now well west of Trinidad and Tobago as of 10:30 AM Friday 6th July 2019.

Tropical waves typically have fair weather ahead of the wave axis, though other features in the area such as surface troughs, increased atmospheric moisture, and local climatic effects, to name a few, may trigger showers and the odd thunderstorm. Following the passage of the wave, much of the active weather typically associated with a tropical wave occurs.
