The main part of what I experienced and spoke about before
has reached the eastern Caribbean.

While tempered by SAL (Dry Air) and high level currents,
it is my experienced opinion it's still hazardous.

We have a mixture of whiteout and blackout for two days now!

Maintain vigilance, ....

Belated, 4th July, People of Paradise,

Independence Day this year is noteworthy for the fact that,
females are in the forefront and are becoming more and more independent.
And the voice of minority groups are gaining representation more and more.

A forward-progression blessing, ....

At 1:45am. tonight, I woke to see if outside was flooding.
Not being sensational at all, in the true vein of disturbances,
it came out of nowhere. Or rather SAL (Dry - Air).

The attached picture tells it all and it's getting worse. I'm on standby.

Satellite images suggest Impact has not arrived and will happen in 12 - 48 hrs.
But at 2:00 am. we Trinidadians had to be first in the party.

All this requires a subsequent post.

Standing by
God bless

- 2nd. Blob -

Good Morning everyone,

The attached image taken at 05:15 a.m. this morning,
along with quite a few others I saw, make this blob,
our fifth for the rainy season and second with cyclonic possibility,
seem much worse than it really is.

In reality,
Diego Martin, Trinidad, has 400' -1,000' (Ft.) grey clouds
moving at about 35kph. Sparse as rain clouds go.

This scientifically means two things.
"It's going south america or is too fast to be cyclonic over t'dad."
"The lowness of the clouds means showers are here."
(In localized areas). Typical for let's say the first 15 blobs.

To repeat: the rain has reached but looks worse than it really is.

God bless

Tomorrow is always a different matter.

- First Flash Flood

Trinidad and Tobago

Good night to all readers of StormCarib. Well today Trinidad had a rude awakening to the rainy season. One of the season's early Tropical Waves made its presence felt as strong showers greeted everyone as they woke up this morning. intense rainfall was felt throughout Trinidad which caused flooding in our Capital. I was also caught by surprise as I was trapped in the middle of one of those rain showers while inside a business place for over a hour waiting for the flood waters to subside. We all should get ready for the season ahead of us.

Regards
S Abouhamad

- Fourth Blob maybe nascent Cyclonic - 72 hrs.

People of Paradise,

One of the attached pics below is testimony
of how ' N~o~r~m~a~l ' June 2015
the wettest month in T'dad & T'bgo has been
in terms of Atmospheric Conditions.

That night it rained.
For practically three hours in fore-day morning it rained.
Not drizzled, not thunder showers, it rained. (with gentle breezes).

The morning sun, dawn, and trek to work was
a marvelous, miracle of re-creation, alleviation (from dryness),
and an overall Bliss of pressure, temperature and humidity.

Please, please, please, let's continue to live of of The Earth.

That was the third blob. In 36 hrs. for T'dad and T'bgo,
72 hrs. for The Virgin Islands areas, expect a fourth blob.

Except that it's from 39 W. - 47 W. Longitude, (large)
and that it is concentrated below 9 N. Latitude in The ITCZ,
only early arthritis says it can be nascent cyclonic.
There is too much SAL, it's the first one, it is too south,
there is too much wind shear.

Whatever happens, I am keeping my boots on
between June and November and when I lose our umbrella
buy a new one.

Now, THE MAIN EVENT :
T'dad & T'bgo will have National Elections, September 7th.

God bless

Good Morning, People of Paradise,

We had a massive shower last night.
It was so refreshing to the atmosphere
that in fits of waking moments, (audible moments),
we slept thru it.

The ground is soaked !!!
The rheumatoid fever is dissipating.

As a pedantic aside;
There is more than a hint of moisture in the atmosphere,
meaning more is to come, ....

...TROPICAL WAVES...

A TROPICAL WAVE IS W OF THE ITCZ FROM 1N TO 14N WITH AXIS NEAR 
54W...MOVING W AT 15-20 KT DURING THE LAST 24 HOURS. SSMI TPW 
IMAGERY SHOW THE WAVE CONTINUES EMBEDDED WITHIN ABUNDANT 
MOISTURE IN THE MIDDLE TO LOWER LEVELS. SATELLITE DERIVED WINDS 
AND MODEL GUIDANCE SHOW A DIFFLUENT ENVIRONMENT ALOFT E OF THE 
WAVE AXIS THAT SUPPORT SCATTERED MODERATE CONVECTION FROM 03N TO 
07N BETWEEN THE AXIS AND 50W. FURTHER CONVECTION IS BEING 
HINDERED MAINLY BY STRONG DEEP LAYER WIND SHEAR IN THIS REGION 
OF THE TROPICAL ATLC.

God Bless

- skirting danger - 36 hrs. -

Hello,
People of Paradise,

There is an imminent blob that will skirt us well within 36hrs.

There are two good news and one bad news;
- It is moving very fast.
- It is very south.
The bad news is that,
- It will be at its biggest at about 62 W. Longitude.

That is also when it will make landfall. (as a tropical wave).

Keep your boots on,
and
God bless

- Dual Case Scenario - possible but not probable - 36 hrs.
  • From: Ian Martin Borde <readkrox51 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Sat, 9 May 2015 09:44:05 -0400
Good Fellows of Paradise,

I forecast rain, (specially as it just fell). (tee hee) ( like Grenada ) !
AND SOON.

TS. Ana is 12 - 36 hrs. from true landfall but my opinion is it will head out to sea.

There is a system forming, ( possible after eastern Caribbean ), at 40 W.
That 's not where the rain came from.
But at 60 W. the bands (I call feeder bands that make it cyclonic)
are touching the coast of Trinidad. Definite rainfall, ..., in 12 - 36 hrs.,
(If like all the previous the whole gamut doesn't go Venezuela or even Brazil.).

Thanks and Praise
