More muck ahead for fish and sailors...
Thursday 20th September 2018
From west to east,
The leftovers of ISAAC are ashore over the Yucatan peninsula. If this patch of mucky weather makes it into the Bay of Campeche, it may produce squally weather for a day or two but storm development is unlikely.
Disturbance Thirty Eight is westbound at 20 knots, just passing about 200 miles north of Curacao. This is producing some localised squalls but is not likely to develop.
Disturbance Forty One is centred 280 miles north-west of Bermuda. This is still expected to loaf about aimlessly for a few days but always remaining well clear of the eastern seaboard and development is not really expected.
Disturbance Forty is now 350 miles due north of the mouth of the Amazon moving west-nor'west at 10 knots. This looks to be starting to curve more to the north, which is just as well as this appears to be starting to get a twinkle in its eye. A turn into the Atlantic before reaching the Caribbean where there is a convenient belt of wind shear waiting, would be much appreciated. There is chatter on the wires about another fish storm in the central Atlantic. With apologies to sailors and fish, we'd all be happy to see the season's storm allocation staying out at sea.
