- Busy Season
  • By Daniella Seepaul <daniellaseepaul at gmail.com>

Hi Fellow Islanders,

 

With a series of potential storms on the horizon; 91L, 92L, and another that’s about to leave the West coast of Africa it's evident that this season will be a busy one. Watching 91L closely as some models indicate it passing somewhere close or over the Lesser Antilles, and over to the Caribbean Sea, whilst after 92L and possibly future 93L tread across the Atlantic Ocean, it's a bit too early to predict its future track.

 

This is the time when we should all be prepared, making sure all is storm and possibly hurricane ready as we now enter the peak phase of the season.

 

Always be prepared.

 

Regards.

Daniella Seepaul

With TD 4 out in the Atlantic located at 13.2N and 40.0W, the Antigua met office have issued an alert statement for the Leeward Islands & British Virgin Islands to monitor TD 4 closely, http://fb.me/44SLCZ5z0

- WATCHING THE FIRST OF THE SEASON

IT IS  EARLY  in the  hurricane  season  for us  to be   watching  but   94L  seems  worth  watching….   hopefully  it will pass to the north over the next few days  but   as we know   weather is  always   unknown  so this is a  good  heads up  for us !  



- Things Seems to be Starting!

Hi Fellow Islanders,

It seems to be the very start of things for the 2017 hurricane season not withholding the very first storm Arlene has come and gone since April.
Now looking out at the Atlantic we can see a series of tropical waves one of which has a 20% chance of developing into a tropical cyclone within the next 5 days according to the National Hurricane Center.

Presently the weather here in Antigua is beautiful, we're experiencing a lovely easterly breeze and slightly overcast skies, a perfect beach day.
Enjoying the weather but keeping an eye out at the Atlantic, remember it only takes one.



Be prepared, be vigilant!

Regards,
Daniella Seepaul
