From west to east;
Disturbance Twenty Six is an open area of low pressure closing in on the northernmost Windward Islands moving west-nor’west at 13 knots. Despite signs of rotation, the surface circulation is weak and thunderstorm activity has not become any better organised since yesterday. Environmental conditions may improve over the coming 24 hours and it is possible that the system could become a tropical depression or low-end tropical storm, and in any event a rainmaker, before reaching Puerto Rico later tomorrow.
Disturbance Twenty Eight is two days astern of Twenty Six, westbound at 13 knots and also rather weak. Environmental conditions for this disturbance do not appear particularly favourable. Let’s hear it for the Canadian guy.
Disturbance Twenty Seven is now midway between the Cape Verde Islands and the Caribbean. This is little more than a weak trough with few signs of showers or thunderstorm activity. The disturbance is likely to remain weak as it continues its current steady westward motion over the next few days.
Disturbance Twenty Nine has slipped the African coast this morning, westbound at 10 knots. This is showing early signs of rotation along with some thunderstorm activity. Early days.
