From west to east;
Disturbance Eighteen is ashore now in central America and off our radar.
Oddball newbie Disturbance Twenty has piped up way out in the western North Atlantic, some 550 miles south-sou’ east of Newfoundland and is nudging slowly south-west. This has a whiff of rotation about it which is odd, but environmental conditions so far north are unlikely to allow it to produce anything deep and meaningful.
Disturbance Nineteen is now centred around 500 miles west-sou’west of the Cape Verde Islands, still making a good 20 knots on a westerly heading. An excessive ground speed and Saharan air being dragged into the vertical column are keeping development nicely in check. As things stand, this has no environmental conditions in its path likely to encourage cyclone growth.
