From west to east;

Disturbance Twenty Six is now centred around a day’s steaming east of the Windward Islands headed west-nor’west at 8 knots. This is a tiny system showing little sign of life but has favourable development conditions ahead as it approaches the northernmost Lesser Antilles tomorrow night. From there, it is likely to track close to Puerto Rico on Tuesday and Hispaniola by Wednesday where heavy rain and thunderstorms may be expected as a very minimum.

Disturbance Twenty Eight is now midway between the Cape Verde Islands and the Caribbean moving a tad north of west at 12 knots. It is possible that this may interact with Disturbance Twenty Six which will add a layer of complexity to the forecast regarding the development potential.

Disturbance Twenty Seven has not yet moved far from its previous position a day west of the Cape Verde Islands but now starting to get a head of steam up and move west. Despite the cataclysmic prediction of the Canadian guy, this is kitten weak and has little development prospects as things stand.

Stand easy.
