No significant disturbances at sea

Sunday 5th August 2018

Disturbance Twenty One is a few hours east of the Lesser Antilles now, moving briskly west. This will bring some heavy showers and the odd thunderstorm to the islands, but this will be short-lived. Thereafter the disturbance will push on west with no development expectations.

Disturbance Twenty Three is now around 1000 miles southwest of the Azores. This will track southwest over the next couple of days before turning to the northeast and accelerating into the northern North Atlantic where passion-killing cool water awaits. This may develop tropical characteristics over the next few days but won't impact any land area.

Disturbance Twenty Two is about a day west of the Cape Verde islands moving west at about 12 knots. Tropical development is unlikely.

Stand easy.
