From west to east;

Disturbance Nineteen is now around a day’s steaming east of Trinidad, westbound at 22 knots. This is still drawing Saharan sand which is putting a block on development. Sand also stretches into the Caribbean where conditions continue to be unfavourable for cyclonic development as this tracks west.

Disturbance Twenty formed as a low pressure cell crossed the mouth of the Gambia River, now westbound at 18 knots. This also faces a sandy track across the Atlantic and as things stand, unlikely to develop.

Stand easy.
