Recon is airborne and we have a data stream so far. They released a dropsonde just SE of St Croix and the lower level winds appear to be connected to the tropical wave. I'm not a Met so it's a bit hard to define wave connected winds.
Lower level, below 10,000 feet, of dropsonde information is below. Coordinates: 17.4N 63.9W Location: 158 miles (255 km) to the ESE (116°) from San Juan, Puerto Rico (USA)
