Aside from the two non-developing systems reported here, there are no signs of any significant pressure gradients across the reporting region. Even the Canadian Guy seems to have temporarily run out of words of gloom and no doubt has his feet up somewhere.

Disturbance Thirteen is crossing the island of Hispaniola headed west-nor’west at 15 knots, the nominal centre having just passed the border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. This is continuing to produce showers and thunderstorms along with some gusty outbursts extending into western Cuba and Jamaica. This is expected to cross the north-western Caribbean tonight then push into the southern Gulf of Mexico on Sunday where, the experts tell me, no development is expected.

Disturbance Fourteen is now centred around 700 miles north-east of the mouth of the Amazon headed west at 18 knots. Environmental conditions are not expected to be particularly cyclone-friendly as it moves west-nor’west to pass the Leeward Islands on Sunday night before entering the Caribbean without development.

Stand easy.
