Two weak disturbances nearing dissipation

Saturday 21st October 2017

From west to east

Disturbance Fifty Three is now close to beaching on the border of Nicaragua and Honduras, headed west at 18 knots. This is causing enhanced showers and thunderstorms across Central America but has had its day as far as we are concerned.

The idle chatterers are still buzzing at the potential for an area of low pressure to from in the western Caribbean late next week. Any system that forms will move northeast across Cuba and the Bahamas. Early days.

There is little to identify Disturbance Fifty Four from aerial imagery, loosely centred some 550 miles north of the mouth of the Amazon and is likely to wimp out altogether within the next day or so.

Stand easy.
