Two disturbances loafing about aimlessly
Friday 28th October 2016
Two static disturbances are the only echoes on our radar today, both loafing about like bored teenagers.
Disturbance forty eight is still skulking about in net zero steering currents close to the coast of Nicaragua. This is creating rain but without development prospects. This should drift ashore soon.
Disturbance forty nine has hardly moved, if anything, slouched east a little. This is now about a day and a half west of the Cape Verde islands. This is an open trough of low pressure which should head off soon to the north east into the subtropical Atlantic. If this does develop, it will be well clear of land.
