Three non-threatening disturbances in daily report - hopefully....

Thursday 21st June 2018

My apologies for those of you who did not receive these reports for several days. An IT gremlin, I'm told by those who understand this stuff. I still think we were better off with semaphore. Fingers crossed for today…..

From west to east,

Disturbance Three is off our radar now as it weakens over south Texas and north-eastern Mexico. More rain to come for a few days, I'm afraid. Thanks to those of you who have sent me updates on rainfall. We call that ‘summer' in London.

Disturbance Six is about a day east of the Mosquito coast of Nicaragua rattling west at 18 knots. This is quite weak and showing no signs of development but will bring heavy showers and thunderstorms to Central America today and tomorrow.

Disturbance Seven is passing about 100 miles north of the mouth of the Orinoco, headed west-nor'west at 17 knots. This is also fairly weak and not expected to develop.

Disturbance Eight is now centred about two days west of the Cape Verde islands moving west at 19 knots. This is still battling a wide sweep of Saharan sand that extends out into the tropical Atlantic from west Africa which will nicely suppress any vertical convection.

Stand easy.
