New disturbance galloping west
Saturday 2nd June 2016
Disturbance nine has moved into the eastern Caribbean and is about one day's steaming west of the Leeward Islands. This is moving west at 17 knots but not expected to develop due to unfavourable conditions aloft, but will produce increased showers and thunderstorms today across the Lesser Antilles, eastern Caribbean, and Puerto Rico.
Disturbance eleven has formed in the mid Atlantic point (by longitude) and almost the dead central latitude of the intertropical convergence zone. This would be fertile turf for further development had not the pressure cell decided to gallop west at an unnecessary 20 knots which will not allow development. This may produce an increase in showers and thunderstorms across the Lesser Antilles and eastern Caribbean in the middle of the coming week.
