Cyclones and seafarers face easy Atlantic crossings

Sunday 26th August 2018

Disturbance Twenty Nine is now around 800 miles north east of the mouth of the Amazon headed west at 18 knots. This is still sticking resolutely to the dead centre of the convergence zone. This faces adverse cyclonic development conditions on its current track and no inclination to take advantage of more a more favourable environment which a nudge north would provide. I'll give up making rash predictions and stick to the day job.

Disturbance Thirty is set to leave the African coast in the next day or so. This is another fledgling full of promise but dry air across the convergence zone looks set to keep weakening this once it is seaborne.

Easy Atlantic crossings for cyclones and seafarers.

Stand easy.
