The still un-named system in the Caribbean basin is nonetheless bringing lots of wind and rain to the area. We just found this excellent page of webcams that show what is happening on Grand Cayman.

The latest from the NHC on that system:

A STRONG TROPICAL WAVE LOCATED IN THE WESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA IS PRODUCING THUNDERSTORMS AND STRONG WINDS WITH GUSTS ABOVE TROPICAL STORM FORCE. AN AIR FORCE RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT IS CURRENTLY INVESTIGATING THE SYSTEM TO DETERMINE IF IT HAS A CLOSED CIRCULATION. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS APPEAR FAVORABLE FOR THIS SYSTEM TO BECOME A TROPICAL DEPRESSION WITHIN THE NEXT DAY OR TWO AS IT MOVES WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 15 TO 20 MPH. REGARDLESS OF DEVELOPMENT...LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS WILL AFFECT JAMAICA...PORTIONS OF CUBA...AND THE CAYMAN ISLANDS TODAY AND TOMORROW. INTERESTS IN THE NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA AND THE YUCATAN PENINSULA SHOULD CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF THIS SYSTEM.
