Four underwhelming disturbances under way

Disturbance thirty five is a day north west of Hispaniola moving to the west-nor'west at 12 knots and should be absorbed into a frontal boundary over the next few days. No development expected. Frontal activity is creating something of a donkey's breakfast of weather charts of the east and Gulf coasts of the continental United States. Without wanting to excite the storm wary, this is fairly typical of the early days of the season's final curtain. The downside is that this can create opportunities for the opportunist system to develop locally and there is still warm water and rising air.

Disturbance thirty nine is mid Atlantic now and at a standstill but expected to move slowly to the west-nor'west over the next few days. This motion could take it in the direction of the northern Leeward Islands in about 6 to 7 days. Environmental conditions are not expected to be favourable for development.

Disturbance thirty six is also hove to, a day or so astern of thirty nine and has crept to the arid north of the convergence zone. No development is expected due to unfavourable environmental conditions ie sand.

Newbie disturbance thirty eight is just passing the Cape Verde Islands and moving west at 5 knots and is expected to continue to do so for the next few days. This also looks set to disappoint the storm enthusiast. Stand easy.
