Atlantic production line in full flow

Wednesday 20th June 2018

The Atlantic production line is in full flow now with four on radar today. From west to east;

Disturbance Three is continuing to make its presence felt with heavy shower and thunderstorm activity across the western Gulf of Mexico, the coast of Texas and north-eastern Mexico which will continue for at least another 24 hours.

Disturbance Six is now midway between the Netherlands Antilles and the coast of Nicaragua, westbound at 22 knots which will put paid to any ideas of development other than located over than heavy showers and thunderstorms across northern Colombia today and across Central America for the next couple of days.

Disturbance Seven has piped up about a day east of the Windward Island headed west-nor'west at 18 knots. This is quite weak and will probably do little more than create enhanced showers and thunderstorms across the Lesser Antilles over the next two days.

Disturbance Eight has formed about a day west of the Cape Verde islands, westbound at 18 knots. Aerial imagery shows significant airborne sand in the area extending into the central Atlantic which should prevent development, for the next few days at the very least.

Stand easy.
