The Saint Lucia Meteorological Services is monitoring a low-pressure area showing signs of development mid-way between Saint Lucia and the African coast.

On Saturday, Meteorological Services Director Andre Joyeux told St. Lucia Times there was a fifty percent chance of development in the next two days.

Joyeux also disclosed a seventy percent chance of development within the next seven days.

“We are expecting this system to pass close to us or over us by Tuesday so we are monitoring and updating persons on the possibility of a depression affecting us,” he stated.

Joyeux explained that there are tropical waves after that system.

He reiterated that it is the Atlantic Hurricane Season when more and more Tropical Waves will emerge.

He stated that most reports indicate that the Atlantic Ocean is warmer.

Experts, who previously predicted a normal Atlantic hurricane season, have upgraded their prediction to forecast an above-normal season due to the warm sea temperatures.

Joyeux told St. Lucia Times that warmer seas represent the main ingredient that will cause systems to develop.

” And we are going into the peak of the hurricane season, which is typically September, so people should be cautious,” the Meteorological Services Director noted.
