Two more half-baked attempts to live up to the description ' Atlantic storm season'

General overview Thursday 2nd October 2014

Disturbance forty one is a dismal and uninspiring non-tropical low in the central north Atlantic. It should remain a non-tropical low, and development is not expected.

Disturbance forty three is a tropical wave about 650 miles north-nor'east of the Amazon delta and moving west at 15 knots. As the flag bearer for today's onslaught of foul weather on the Caribbean, this is an utter failure. Enhanced showers and storms are possible for Trinidad and the southern Windward Islands late Sunday and Monday, but hardly cause for raising the storm cones.

The magnificent, impressive system which was mustering forces over the African coast and preparing to launch with unbridled fury into the eastern Atlantic, has started to weaken before it has even become seaborne. Pointless effort.
