- TROPICAL SYSTEMS
  • By "Steve Donahue" <steve at anguilla-weather.com>
  • Date: Thu, 17 Aug 2017 11:26:15 -0400

Right now, none of the tropical systems to our east are any threat to AXA – but possibly the Bahamas and Western Caribbean. 

 

Here’s hoping you’ll hear nothing further from me the rest of this hurricane season.  J  Cheers,

- TROPICAL SYSTEMS
  • By "Steve Donahue" <tainos at anguillanet.com>
  • Date: Tue, 15 Aug 2017 12:47:40 -0400

Right now there are 3 tropical lows out to our east, but development is unlikely with any of them because of high wind shear just to our east.  But continue to monitor for any possible unexpected development.

 

Cheers,

- STORM 91L - EASTERN ATLANTIC
  • By "Steve Donahue" <tainos at anguillanet.com>
  • Date: Mon, 14 Aug 2017 11:19:40 -0400

This is just a heads up regarding the system out in the Atlantic (long way off), but right now models are calling for slow development, possibly affecting AXA as a depression (20-30 mph winds, some rain) on Friday into Saturday.  The northern islands (including AXA) are most at risk for any kind of storm.  As of now, only 1 model calls for possible strengthening to a tropical storm before reaching us – but all the others, nothing stronger than a depression.  So right now, figure some winds, maybe a little rain (please!) for AXA – but continue to monitor – could easily change.  Cheers,

- INVEST 94-L
  • By "Steve Donahue" <tainos at anguillanet.com>
  • Date: Wed, 5 Jul 2017 09:37:22 -0400

There has been no further development of this system and chances of development in next 5 days have now been lowered to around 70%.  All current models call for the system to pass well to the north of us and is no threat at this time.  No further updates on this system - but continue to keep an eye out for any changes.

- FW: INVEST 94-L STORM
  • By "Steve Donahue" <tainos at anguillanet.com>
  • Date: Tue, 4 Jul 2017 11:53:46 -0400

WEDNESDAY, July 4 – 11:39 AM

 

Some changes with Invest 94-L this AM, now with the potential to become TS Don by tomorrow, and possibly graze us to the north on Saturday-Sunday.  Unless there is additional strengthening/track change, should just bring us some squally/rainy weather.  Crown forecast today;

“Given the appearance of Invest 94-L on satellite imagery and the fact that it will be embedded within favorable environmental conditions for development, I think that there is at least a 90 percent chance that we will see Invest 94-L become Tropical Storm Don by Wednesday.

Everyone Across The Northern Lesser Antilles {includes Anguilla}, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico & The Northeastern Caribbean should at least be prepared for tropical storm conditions starting on Saturday and continuing into the first half of Sunday.”

As always – continue to monitor the forecast.  Cheers,

TUESDAY, July 3 – 9:59 AM

Based on this morning’s forecast, looks like no real threat for us here in AXA.  No further updates unless things change for the worse.  Cheers,

Even though it is looking increasingly more likely that Invest 94-L will pass to the north of the Lesser Antilles, I would still caution Everyone Across The Northern Lesser Antilles, Virgin Islands & Puerto Rico to keep a close eye on this tropical disturbance. There is the potential that this system could still come close enough to produce squally weather this weekend.”

- SEVERE WEATHER POSSIBLE NEXT WEEKEND
  • By "Steve Donahue" <steve at anguilla-weather.com>
  • Date: Sun, 2 Jul 2017 11:51:45 -0400

Nothing to be too concerned about right now but could be some bad weather next weekend – POSSIBLY a tropical storm but probably just a tropical disturbance with some rain/gusty winds.  Just need to keep an eye on because it si forecast to pass over us.  The Crown Weather Service forecast this morning:

“As of right now, I think there is a 40 to 50 percent chance that we will see a tropical depression form to the east of the Lesser Antilles between 30 and 40 West Longitude around Tuesday or Wednesday.

Everyone Across The Lesser Antilles” {this includes Anguilla},” Virgin Islands & Puerto Rico should keep very close tabs on this tropical disturbance. There is the potential that this system could impact you next weekend as, at the minimum, a strong tropical disturbance and very possibly as a tropical storm.”

Just need to keep an eye on it this week.  Cheers,

- March Rain
  • By "Joanie Howard" <joanie.howard1 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Sun, 2 Apr 2017 12:05:48 +0100
Sadly I have had to leave my winter home and return to the mud and rain in the English Lake District. Talking of rain, up to when I left Anguilla last Wednesday our total rainfall on the Searocks for March had been .98 of an inch and I don’t think there has been any more since, it was quite hot the last few days 91F on the day I left and the ocean was flat calm with very little breeze but I am told the north east wind is back and the sea is stirring again. I leave you for now with a pic of Captains Bay and Scrub Island  in one of the big seas we had in the last few months.
My best to all and in hope of a Hurricane free season to come.

The current temp is 78f and we have had high winds and  very rough seas for 
about the last week and 3/4 of an inch of rain since 01 March, plants are sort 
of happy, bit of rain but quite a lot of salt in the wind as well. I had to 
send you this picture of the Anguilla Tulip which is actually a Mahogany seed 
just opening, just another example of how nature

can beat us every time.
I hope you all have a great night.

Good Evening Everyone, it is very un-Anguilla like weather, the current temp is 73F in the breeze, the sun, that has been invisible since lunch time, has just gone down, we have had about a quarter of an inch of rain, which I must say is much needed.  I am sitting  at my computer in a pair of Levis a cotton shirt and a cotton sweater and my body temp is just about OK, but it is definitely what I would call bed-weather. Definitely no diving tomorrow, the sea is angry, someone has upset it, large wild rollers coming in. Stay warm ad dry.
Best regards,
JH

Good Morning to you all,
Just to post that we had .93 of an inch of rain during the whole of February here on the Searocks, that means less than 2 inches so far in 2017. Not enough by a long shot.  We have very strong winds gusting at the moment and there is supposed to be a local sailboat race this afternoon, which should be interesting to say the least. The Temp is a lovely 80F in the shade, the ocean a deep blue with a lot of whitecaps and it is gorgeous. I attach a pic of The Tradition, one of our old local sloops which has been beautifully restored and will take you out sailing.
My best to all,
JH

- Full moon

Evening everyone,
On this night of the beautiful full moon, I send you this pic of it over island 
harbour, the best I can do without a flash. It has been a great day today here 
in Anguilla, lovely dive off Sandy Island, 3 HUGE Barracudas, a couple of nice, 
quite big nurse sharks, thankfully sleeping, and a lovely big turtle.  Then 
listened to some great music from the 264 string band at Madearimon Restaurant 
on Shaol Bay, the place to be on Anguilla on a Saturday Afternoon. The food is 
delicious as well.
I wish you all a very good night,
JH

- January Rain
  • By "Joanie Howard" <joanie.howard1 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Wed, 1 Feb 2017 19:20:30 -0000
Good Afternoon Everybody,
I did remember to say “White Rabbits” first thing this AM so hopefully February will be a lucky month for us all. The current temp is 80F and there is a strong easterly breeze, very comfortable in the shade.
The total rainfall for January on the Searocks was .99 of an inch, not enough I am afraid, the plants are still thirsty and dropping their leaves everywhere. Lovely dive at Anguillita yesterday, but the island is quiet, the hotels and restaurants are not busy and this should be our prime time, so please come on down if you are in need of a holiday. Small Brown Dog Mark II is busy lounging on the gallery and chasing lizards but has been completely flummoxed by Harry our resident wild tortoise who will absolutely not run away, see pics.
I wish everyone a great rest of the day and evening.

Good Morning All,
The current temp is 78F in the house and the total rainfall for December 2016 on the Searocks was 3.14 inches. I hope 2017 has started without any hiccups, it did for me I had a wonderful dive yesterday morning in the beautiful soft coral garden, saw  10 Turtles no less!
My best wishes,

A Very Happy New Year to all and sundry. current temp is 78F, extremely comfortable compared with many other parts of the world, and there is a new moon and a fresh breeze. Where else would one want to be? I was invited to a party tonight but as I would like to start 2017 in my happy place 75 or so feet under the ocean I declined the Indian food (no doubt delicious) and assortment of various people of paradise ( to borrow T&T’s words) so that I can get up at 6.30 get my dive gear together, feed, water and walk the small brown dog before I jump onto Dougie’s boat, breath the ions off the ocean and tip off  backwards into the Atlantic Ocean. 2016 saw me make 70 years as they say here, and one of my Anguillan friends said the other day, “but Joanie you are only 70EC dollars not 70US. So I attach a pic where one can look great at 70EC in a 3mil wetsuit with a mask and regulator hiding all the wrinkles. Have a happy time and a great year everyone.
