First sign of an Atlantic production line firing up

Saturday 6th July 2019

Disturbance Eight dissipated shortly after passing Aruba.

Disturbance Nine is now centred around 450 miles north-west of the mouth of the Amazon, moving west at 16 knots in dry air and is not expected to develop.

Newbie Disturbance Ten left the African coast last night. Whilst this is coincidental with another burst of sand from the Sahara which may limit vertical convection as it tracks west, this does show that the Atlantic production line has a head of steam up now. More will follow.

Stand easy.
