Fish storm LORENZO

Disturbance sixty eight became Tropical Storm LORENZO yesterday afternoon, currently centred 700 miles south east of Bermuda and moving harmlessly to the east-nor'east at 5 knots. The maximum sustained winds are near 40 knots. Some strengthening is possible today with sustained winds expected to peak near 45 knots later today, but that will be its peak. By tomorrow a gradual weakening trend will begin and LORENZO will quickly become an ex-storm, and a remnant low in about 3 days time. No land areas will be affected

Disturbance sixty six is centred around seventy miles north of the Mona Passage and is moving to the north-west at 7 knots. A turn to the north is expected over the next day or two. Upper level wind shear over the area will prevent any development.

Disturbance sixty seven is now aroubd 500 miles north east of the Amazon delta and moving west at 12 knots into debilitating wind shear thus conditionsremain unfavourable for development.
