From west to east ;

Two systems mark the east and west extremities of the reporting area. Disturbance Eighteen is closing on the Mosquito Coast of Nicaragua at a brisk 25 knots and will run up the beach today with little more than the odd squall and peal of thunder.

Disturbance Nineteen has formed in the far eastern Atlantic, about a day’s steaming south-east of the Cape Verde Islands. This also has the bit between its teeth charging west at 22 knots which is inhibiting development for the time being.

Stand easy.
