The nominal start day for the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico storm season opens with our neighbours in the eastern Pacific waking to tropical storm BLANCA, well clear of the coast of Mexico. All are in agreement with this peaking today and disappearing seaward – except the Canadian guy of course. He has this turning towards the coast and possibly jumping the fence into the Gulf of Mexico. It won’t.

Kitten-weak Disturbance Four has piped up just 200 miles north of the mouth of the Amazon headed a tad north of west at 12 knots. This is expected to reach the Caribbean overnight tomorrow but as things stand, will bring little more than the odd thunderstorm.

Stand easy.
