Tropical depression Kirk is expected to degenerate into a trough of low pressure during the 48 hours as it makes its way towards the Lesser Antilles
The Barbados-based Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH) says there is a potential for flooding and flash floods across the region during the next three months even as the rainfall totals are forecast to be the usual or lower for the peak of the wet season
The Aletta storm off southern Mexico on Thursday became the first hurricane of the east Pacific season, but it is not a threat to the coast, US meteorologists said.
Even as some Caribbean countries continue in recovery mode following the devastation caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria last September, forecasters are warning that the upcoming Atlantic hurricane season will be another active one, with above-average activity.
Hurricane Maria passed north of Barbados, bringing tropical storm conditions including steady downpours that triggered a flood warning for the island.
The St.Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) Meteorological Service continues to monitor two areas of concern in the Atlantic Basin. Tropical Depression #14, located in the eastern Atlantic and a strong tropical wave (disturbance) in the central Atlantic.
Forecasters are predicting a tropical depression that formed over the Atlantic last night will become a tropical storm later today, and while current projections show that system, as well as a tropical wave in the area with development potential heading generally toward the Caribbean, it’s still too early to see where either will impact.
Hurricane Jose has now reached Category 4 intensity and is continuing on a path that will take it near the northern Leeward Islands by tomorrow, affecting territories that have not yet completed their assessments from the damage done by Hurricane Irma earlier this week.
Tropical Storm Jose is expected to become a hurricane later today as it moves closer to the Lesser Antilles.
Hurricane Irma reached Category 3 strength late yesterday and continues to maintain maximum sustained winds near 115 miles per hour.
Forecasters are monitoring two systems on different sides of the Atlantic which both have the potential to develop.
The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based AccuWeather News Service says two of three budding tropical systems in the Atlantic will approach the Caribbean, Central America and the United States in the coming days.
Hurricane Gert is miles off the US east coast and heading into the open Atlantic, but still dangerous enough to generate life threatening coastal conditions, the National Hurricane Center said Tuesday.
