Brief Hello, and Goodbye Dolly

Wednesday 24th June 2020

Subtropical depression deepened during the night and became subtropical storm DOLLY, a long way from anywhere, some 400 miles east of Newfoundland. This blew for a while, then suddenly hit cold water and has weakened now. This was hardly noticed and will probably be off radar tomorrow.

Talking of skulking away, the Blind Sniper's racing certainty to bring misery to the coast of Texas, Disturbance Fourteen, is slowly disappearing ashore around the area of the Rio Grande. Strangely, he is not reporting today. There will be some heavy rain over northern Mexico and along the coast of Texas, but hardly in catastrophic quantities.

Disturbance Fifteen has piped up around 550 miles north of the mouth of the Amazon moving west at 12 knots. This will bring heavy showers and the odd thunderstorm over the Windward Islands late tomorrow and into Friday but upper level wind shear is keeping development at bay.

Umbrellas and sensible footwear for the mouth of the Rio Grande, otherwise stand easy.
