Clear skies, blue seas

Friday 25th September 2020

Whilst we have been under attack from a range of directions in the reporting area, slightly higher sea temperatures in the Pacific have been reported indicating late seeding of a La Nina environment – falling air on their side of the fence, rising air and less wind shear on ours. This indicates that the season is far from over, as if we need reminding.

From west to east:
One or two of the more reliable modellers are indicating the development of an area of low pressure late next week over the western Caribbean. This is a hot spot at this time of the season and the Gulf of Mexico still has some favourable development prospects. Early days.

Disturbance Fifty has piped up two days' steaming west of the Cape Verde Islands, headed west-nor'west at 7 knots. This track may indicate an early turn into the Atlantic, but it is rather too early to bank on that.

Stand easy.
