Westbound disturbance promising rainy weekend for Leeward Islands.

| Storm Report 2022

From west to east:

Disturbance Thirty is now just over two days east of Guadeloupe moving slightly north of due west at 13 knots which will bring it to the Leeward Islands on Friday thereafter to the US and British Virgin Islands on Saturday. Satellite imagery indicates that this is beginning to develop. Environmental conditions are marginal for further development which may give this system some teeth. Regardless of tropical development, the disturbance is expected to bring several inches of rain to the Leeward, US and British Virgin Islands Friday into Saturday, with the rain spreading into Puerto Rico and Hispaniola on Saturday and into the start of next week. The track becomes uncertain again at this point but a weather watch will be needed.

Disturbance Thirty One is currently centred 250 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands headed west-nor’west at 12 knots. This is a rather poorly organised disturbance and tropical development is not expected as things stand.

Disturbance Thirty Two is about to slip the African coast and is expected to follow the well-worn track to the west into the Atlantic. Conditions are expected to be marginal for tropical development. Early days.

Stand easy.
