Two weak disturbances approaching the Caribbean

Disturbance ten is passing the Windward Island now, has weakened to an open wave and is plodding west at 15 knots. This has brought showers to the islands and the south east Caribbean. Upper level wind shear is still stifling any idea of development and is likely to continue to so so for the remainder of its passage towards Central America.

Disturbance eleven, little more than a tropical wave really, has formed a day or so east of disturbance ten and is similarly uninspiring. This will also trudge pointlessly west at around 15 knots, bringing a second dose of rainfall to the south eastern Caribbean in a few days time, but is also headed for an uneventful conclusion.

Stand easy
