Two weak systems set to close an ailing season

At the moment, disturbance seventy two is a weak area of low pressure passing to the south of the Cayman Islands, moving harmlessly to the west-nor'west at 5 knots and strong wind shear is expected to prevent any tropical development from occurring although, heavy rainfall and localised flooding will be possible today in Jamaica, Haiti and eastern Cuba.

Disturbance seventy-three is in the eastern Atlantic and starting to meander pointlessly towards mid-Atlantic mediocrity. Very strong wind shear will prevent this system from developing.

I have a seafarer's inbuilt caution against hasty declarations of safety, but this season does seem to be on its last legs.

Stand easy
