Five systems seaborne but no threat
Friday 23rd August 2019
From west to east,
Disturbance Thirty is centred around midway between the Texas/Louisiana border and Yucatan channel ambling north with neither urgency nor significant development. This will probably go ashore this weekend somewhere in central Texas with considerable rain but no tropical development.
Disturbance Thirty One is milling about over the Bahamas with a turn towards the north expected this weekend. High moisture content will produce heavy thunderstorms and rainfall across the Bahamas and southeastern Florida overhkthe next few days By early next week, the disturbance is expected to turn towards the northeast where more favourable conditions are expected off the south eastern seaboard before heading harmlessly seaward. That's the plan, anyway.
Tropical Depression CHANTAL is continuing to weaken into a remnant low over the open North Atlantic and will probably be off radar tomorrow.
Disturbance Twenty Nine is centred around 700 miles north east of the mouth of the Amazon moving west at 18 knots. The system currently has some enhanced thunderstorm activity and rotation associated with it. A track towards the west is expected through the weekend, with a turn towards the northwest expected by early next week but without tropical development.
Disturbance Thirty Two has piped up passing the Cape Verde Islands. This system will move into a large area of dry air as it tracks west over the next few days and development is not expected.
