What’s the weather like for us?

A tropical wave along 54 West is steadily marching towards us. Conditions are not favorable due to widespread dry and sinking air to the north of the wave. However, there is some shower and thunderstorm activity occurring with this wave.

On its present path, it will reach the Lesser Antilles Thursday night and Friday. Its passage will cause an increase in showers and thunderstorms but conditions will remain unfavorable for development through this week in the Caribbean.

Meanwhile, our first Tropical Storm of the season (Arlene) was located along the coast of Mexico about 70 miles south of Tampico, early Thursday morning. Arlene has sustained winds of 65 mph with gusts to 75 mph. Arlene is moving toward the west at 9 mph. it is predicted that it will make landfall within the next hour or two but should weaken quickly later this morning.

A hurricane warning is in effect along the east coast of Mexico from Barra De Nautla northward to La Cruz. 

The PowerHouse will always keep you on the alert.

Don’t forget we are in the hurricane season and I implore you to always remain prepared.

  1. thanks mr editor ,on the day Tomas struck I had heard no warning on Radio 100, which went off the air just after 8 am and it was only when twiddling the radio dial I got radio St Vincent which was in the process of issuing an imminent hurricane warning which gave me time to batten down the hatches so something less chancy than my experience is appreciated
