No significant low pressure development taking place

Saturday 23rd July 2016

After an uneventful Atlantic crossing, disturbance fourteen crept ashore in Central America, unnoticed like a thief in the night. Done and dusted.

Disturbance fifteen looks to be having an equally uninspiring voyage to the west and has opened out into an open low pressure wave and now also nearing the beach in Central America. This is likely to do little more than enhance shower and thunderstorm activity across Central America, the Yucatan Peninsula, and the Bay of Campeche today and tomorrow.

Disturbance sixteen is now centred around 1700 miles east of the Lesser Antilles, westbound at a steady 17 knots. Upper level shear ahead will prevent this doing anything impressive.

Stand easy.
