My apologies to the small number of addressees who did not receive a report yesterday. This was due to a technical glitch with advanced technology, which we never had with morse or semaphore. Just saying.

Disturbance Twelve passed the Windward Islands overnight and is now in the south-eastern Caribbean cracking along at a brisk 20 knots. The advanced ground speed is preventing surface organisation and the disturbance is opening out into a non-threatening low pressure trough. This is expected to continue for the next few days and will do little more than produce increasing showers and thunderstorms across coastal Venezuela to Central America moving into the eastern Pacific overnight on Wednesday.

Disturbance Thirteen is now centred 600 miles north-east of the mouth of the Amazon moving a tad north of west at 16 knots. This is showing no signs of organising into anything deep and meaningful aside from the odd thunderstorm and this is expected to continue. The disturbance looks to be shaping up to pass the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Wednesday night with squalls fanning out over a wide area but little sign of development as things stand.

Stand easy.
