Quiet day but not the end of the 2106 season

Saturday 22nd October 2016

Disturbance forty six has moved into Central America and is off radar. Done.

Disturbance forty four has been absorbed into a frontal boundary a couple of hundred miles off the eastern seaboard. Done.

Disturbance forty seven weakened and dissipated some 500 miles east of Trinidad. Done.

Some 740 miles north of the mouth of the Amazon, disturbance forty five Is moving to the west at 12 knots. The system will turn to the north over the next few days and curve away from the Caribbean. This only has a slight chance of development and in any event will not significantly impact any land areas. Busy frontal activity across the Gulf of Mexico and into the western Atlantic is dragging dry air across the region which will protect our reporting region for the next few days, perhaps longer. This is not however the end of the season, sadly. We all live in hope of course.

For now, stand easy.
