The National Hurricane Centre says on the forecast track, the system will pass near or over portions of the southern Windward Islands by tonight, and move over the southern Caribbean Sea or near the northern coast of Venezuela on Wednesday and Thursday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
Conditions appear conducive for development if the disturbance remains over water, and it will likely become a tropical storm near the southern Windward Islands or while moving westward across the southern Caribbean Sea.
Trinidad and Tobago is expected to receive 4 to 6 inches of rainfall.
