Two new disturbances but no development expected

A little more activity today, but of no major significance. From west to east then -

Disturbance Four is centred around 95 miles east-sou'east of Cape Canaveral. This piped up overnight and is beginning to track harmlessly seaward at 6 knots and will probably be absorbed into a frontal system moving off the Florida coast over the coming weekend. Even if this were to develop, it will not affect any land areas.

Disturbance Three is now mid-Caribbean and has crept north, opening up into a low pressure wave extending south from the Windward Passage between Cuba and Haiti and has picked up speed a little. Development is not expected in either environmental conditions or the current surface speed of 18 knots but it will enhance showers and thunderstorms across eastern Cuba, Hispaniola, the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands over the weekend.

Disturbance Five is a new low pressure cell which moved off the African coast this morning with some energy in the form of concentrated thunderstorms. Dry Saharan air lies ahead as this tracks west at 18 knots. This will dampen its enthusiasm, thus development is not expected, at least for the next few days.

Stand easy.
