Saint Lucia Officials ‘Keeping An Eye’ On Disturbance In Atlantic

A disturbance in the eastern Atlantic Ocean is being monitored by Saint Lucia officials, in the face of reports that it could develop into a tropical depression or tropical storm over the next several days.

The Weather Channel said on its official website Friday that the disturbance does not appear to be a significant threat to the Windward Islands or the Caribbean next week.

“This area of low pressure, known as a tropical wave, was located several hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, roughly 2,000 miles east of the Windward Islands, moving westward at 15 to 20 mph,” the website said.

It reported that the National Hurricane Centre (NHC) had assigned a low chance that the area of disturbed weather could eventually strengthen into a tropical depression over the next few days.

Saint Lucia meteorological officials told St Lucia Times that although they are keeping an eye on it,  over the next few days the disturbance will enter an environment that is not conducive for development.

They have estimated that there is about a twenty percent chance of any development.

The Weather Channel said even if a tropical depression or storm does form in the next few days, current forecast guidance suggests it won’t last long.

According to the report, it may eventually move across either the northern coast of South America or the Windward Islands as one of many tropical waves that do so each hurricane season, producing just an uptick in shower activity and some occasionally gusty winds.



    • Martin, strange I was reading the story above and the same thing about Guy was on my mind. Get to the comments section and there is your comment. So sad that Guy, the Senior PM, has developed that reputation and Allen, the Junior PM, no different.

  1. wow, I hear you loud and clear what a powerful message these words have penetrated deep within my soul and have bought tears to my eyes.

    • The Blind Welfare got their donations along with them which came from the fund raising Prime Minister’s Ball. These is the third year also that the Blind Welfare has been receiving donations from the ball. And it is nonsensical to think that the P.M and Guy would be taking monies from this Ball because it’s all about monies raised from the tickets and donations made at the ball. man ya’ll people are negative. But don’t worry the monies that disappeared in front of wall faces and ya’ll don’t like talking about will soon happen again. Remember any hint ,lack of doing things the right way or things which have been hidden at someone’s home spells corruption you know.

  2. Man at least there was a contribution given for them to start the works. When was the last time anything was done or given to cornerstone? All ya’ll like to do is look for the negative in everything if it was someone else who raised the funds and gave the donation then it would have been fine right? But no it’s this white man P.M and his wife who did it so let’s bash the hell out of them and the works done. That’s why we ain’t going far as a people. Way too much negativity in our hearts and minds.
