COLIN leaves interesting statistic

Wednesday 8th June 2016

The remnants of COLIN have merged with a cold front in the north Atlantic, far from land and moving quickly to the north east. One commentator reports that COLIN is the earliest third named storm since 1887. It's going to be a long season.

Disturbance four is a strong tropical wave centred in the eastern Caribbean, mid way between Maracaibo and Haiti and is moving to the west-nor'west at 15 knots. This area is currently dominated by a strong belt of upper level shear sweeping up from the south-west. In two to three days, this will move over the southern Yucatan peninsula and perhaps reach the Bay of Campeche. Although the chance of development is low, the disturbance will bring enhanced showers and thunderstorms to the Yucatan and the Bay of Campeche.

Stand easy.
