Disturbance Forty Four is now moving into southern Belize, headed west-nor’west at 8 knots. A turn to the northwest is expected, which will take the disturbance into the Bay of Campeche this weekend and then towards northern Mexico or southern Texas early next week. There are no signs of surface organisation at the moment however conditions are expected to become favourable for development once the system moves into the Bay of Campeche. Regardless of development, this will be a rainmaker for eastern Mexico and the south-eastern parts of Texas middle of next week.
Category One Hurricane LARRY is centred 800 miles south-west of St. John’s, Newfoundland north at 28 knots. A turn to the northeast and further acceleration is expected tonight with an expected landfall in south-eastern Newfoundland overnight tonight with strong tropical storm force winds gusting 80 knots and some potential coastal flooding.
Disturbance Forty One is centred 900 miles north of the Amazon moving to the west-nor’west at 13 knots. There are no signs of organisation and conditions are currently unfavourable for tropical development however conditions may become a little more favourable for development as it approaches the north-eastern Caribbean early next week.
Disturbance Forty Three is currently centred two and a half days north-west of the Cape Verde Islands moving to the west-nor’west at 12 knots. This has little chance of development as things stand.
Stand by for strong tropical storm force winds in Newfoundland otherwise stand easy.
