Disturbance Fifty Five strengthening slowly

Wednesday 24th October 2018

Disturbance Fifty Five is currently parked around 700 miles east-nor'east of the Leeward Islands. This system is quietly strengthening and edging towards a leisurely track north followed by a turn to the west over the weekend, then north again. Conditions are expected to become more favourable for development over the weekend. This has obviously pleased the Canadian guy, but is expected to be short-lived and well clear of land. Strong cold fronts moving off the eastern seaboard should mean this will only bother sailors and fish.

Stand easy.
