Four non-threatening systems seaborne

Saturday 10th September 2016

Disturbance thirty is now centred around 80 miles west-sou'west of Key West and is moving west at 8 knots. This now looks as if it will slow down as it moves across the central Gulf of Mexico and by the middle of next week, should move into either South Texas or northeast Mexico. Strong wind shear continues to affect the disturbance and this is expected to continue to eventual dissipation ashore.

Disturbance thirty three is located about 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles, moving west at 12 knots and expected to turn toward the west-nor'west this weekend. This system is expected to develop into a depression and eventually a tropical storm however will be well to the east of the Caribbean and won't threaten the Leeward or Windward Islands.

 Disturbance thirty two is about 175 miles north of San Juan, Puerto Rico and moving west-nor'west at 10 knots. There continues to be no signs of organisation and this is expected to dissipate in an upper level low over the next few days as it moves to the west-nor'west towards the southeast United States coast.

Disturbance thirty four has emerged from the coast of west Africa this morning and is moving to the west at 14 knots. This looks to be headed for an early bath in the subtropical eastern Atlantic with no threat to land.

Stand easy.
