Clouds gathering across sub-Sahara Africa

Saturday 1st July 2017

Disturbance Twelve is almost on the beach in Nicaragua now. Done and dusted.

Disturbance Eleven is about a day east of the Windward Islands, headed slightly north of west at 12 knots. This will bring the inevitable showers and the odd roll of thunder to the Lesser Antilles over the weekend but not expected to develop thereafter.

Disturbance Thirteen is about midway across the tropical Atlantic now, cracking along to the west at a heady 22 knots. There is a slight chance of development as it approaches the Lesser Antilles next week, but it will need to take its foot off the gas first. Clouds are gathering across sub-Sahara Africa indicating more disturbances are likely to roll off the production line next week. Season in full swing now.

Stand easy.
