At the moment, it is very overcast and blowing at 20-25mph.

Rain is falling but not heavy, though we had very heavy showers last night.

You can tell how quiet this hurricane season has been simply by seeing how excited people get when a strong tropical wave is passing through. I had people asking me what I was going to do with my boats yesterday!
Anyway, plenty of talk about rain too, but that seems to be in the southern islands from Dominica go down. Here today is just cloudy and windy. The few peeps still windsurfing will be stoked. My few hard core SUP friends will be doing quick down winders from English Harbour to Johnson's Point and a few brave kiters will be getting some nice air time.
Meanwhile Facebook is alight with talk of rain and the "storm".
It's been 14 years since we've experienced hurricane conditions in Antigua. A tropical wave is a far cry from that. Let's not be too eager!
Enjoy the 20-25 knots of breeze. Yesterday was too hot anyway!
Have a great September.

Beautiful morning in Antigua today.. And looks like we will be lucky with storm Dorian... This is the forecast this morn ..... But still watching her path... Hope the rest of the islands are lucky and she does not get stronger...

Results for Antigua (17.12N, 61.78W):
The approximate Closest Point of Approach (CPA) is located near 19.8N, 61.3W or about 189.3 miles (304.6 km) from your location. The estimated time of when the center of the storm will be at that location is in about 1 day, 10 hours and 52 minutes from now (Sunday, July 28 at 5:36PM AST).

- TROPICAL STORM DORIAN
  • From: Martha Gilkes <marthawatkinsgilkes at gmail.com>
  • Date: Fri, 26 Jul 2013 07:12:02 -0400


DAVE IS NOW  TALKING ABOUT  DORIAN -  SEE BELOW WITH MORE ON THE HOME PAGE OF  STORM CARIB........

WE NEED TO KEEP WATCHING THIS........ although the  National Hurricane Center says it has become less organized...but that could
change....


The fourth named storm of the 2013 season, TS Dorian, continues to steamroll towards the northern Leeward Islands at a 17 mph clip, roughly 1800 miles away from Antigua. Moving slightly NW of West, Dorian is expected to pass about 190 miles to the north of the northern Leewards probably on Monday as a still tropical storm. It must be noted while almost all of the computer models are in close agreement with this, a wobble to the south will bring far greater impacts to the northern Caribbean as 4-5 day track forecasts have almost 200 miles of margin for error.

DONT LIKE THE LOOK  OF ALL OF THESE  BIG BLOBS JUST COMING OFF THE  AFRICAN COAST NOW.. ( SEE LINK BELOW).     FAR TOO EARLY TO TELL  WHAT THEY WILL DO BUT   HAD  COMMUNICATION FROM SOMEONE  SUGGEST THE FOLLOWING... WHICH  I HOPE IS  NOT THE  CASE FOR THE LEEWARD ISLANDS.   WILL BE  WATCHING  THIS OF COURSE!  

"For the past four days, the GFS and Canadian model runs have shown a vigorous tropical wave moving off the West Africa coast beginning development late Monday July 22, 2013 or early Tuesday July 23, 2013. According to the models,as the wave tracks west, gradual intensification seems likely, with  a tropical storm or hurricane effecting the Lesser Antilles Island chain approximately one week (07/28/2013) from today."

- Waterspout makes landfall and trees fall!
  • From: eli fuller <eliantigua at gmail.com>
  • Date: Tue, 9 Jul 2013 19:44:20 -0400

The windsurfing was epic today and it wasn't until sunset that we got some rain and a short thunderstorm. The highest winds where we were windsurfing felt like about 35 mph, but during that sunset thunderstorm a big waterspout came through the north of Antigua touching Long Island (jumby bay) and then over the former Navy Base into the med school's football pitch and further into the Jabbawock swamp. Quite a few trees were uprooted and destroyed, and there are reports of minor property damage. Such a strange thing. There's videos and photos all over Facebook. Check the Antigua weather page on Facebook for some of them. The video shows the big spout trailing the rear end of a fairly unimpressive cloud. Here's one that has made the instant message rounds.

  • Date: Mon, 08 Jul 2013 15:31:11 -0400
WATCHING THIS ONE... AT  2 P.M.  WE LEARNED  RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT IS HEADING TOWARD CHANTAL SO THAT WILL GIVE MORE  INFO  for the upcoming advisories. 

IT  SEEMS  STORM CHANTEL  WILL STAY  SOUTH OF US...  BUT  THERE ARE  STORM WARNING OUT FOR  MANY OF THE SOUTHERN ISLANDS ---AS FOLLOWS:   
A TROPICAL STORM WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR...
* BARBADOS
* DOMINICA
* SAINT LUCIA
* MARTINIQUE
* GUADELOUPE

GUADELOUPE IS OUR NEAREST NEIGHBOR..ABOUT  50  MILES TO THE SOUTH.. SO  NEED TO WATCH FOR ANY NORTH TURN OF THIS STORM... 
ALSO THIS IS  THE LATEST ON THE  STORM CARIB SITE ON  HOW CLOSE IT WOULD COME ON THE PRESENT TRACK -- SO WE ARE  LOOKING AT  TOMORROW NIGHT ( TUESDAY) FOR THE CLOSEST POINT TO  ANTIGUA..

Results for Antigua (17.12N, 61.78W):
The eye of the storm is about 723 miles (1163 km) away. If the system keeps moving at its current speed of 25 mph and directly towards you, it will take around 28.9 hours* (Tuesday, July 9 at 6:54PM AST) to reach you.

As ELI mentioned in his  earlier post..  THIS IS A GOOD  "dry run"  to  get and  keep us on our toes as  this is early days in  this  hurricane season.

- Chantal
  • From: eli fuller <eliantigua at gmail.com>
  • Date: Mon, 8 Jul 2013 05:34:22 -0400

Now a tropical storm, Chantal is expected to pass very quickly through the island chain south of Antigua far enough and fast enough that we shouldn't experience conditions that are too threatening. It isn't expected to reach hurricane strength but you and I think this will be the perfect storm to get people energized, motivated and reminded about hurricane preparedness. If you know fishermen and people who don't normally listen to forecasts please give them the info. We could get gusts of 40mph in squalls and I imagine the south shore will get some extreme windsurfing conditions!! Extra lines and fenders on the boats just in case today because it's due to effect here late tonight and tomorrow.

JUST READ this  below from GERT on his wonderful STORM CARIB SITE  and  not  pleased with that.... have not heard  other reports but  guess we  just have  to be ready for  JUNE  1  ( start of hurricane season) to roll round  as we know we are  in  "hurricane alley" 



Today the 
Tropical Storm Risk group at University College London, UK, came out with a forecast for the upcoming season (yes, only 2 months away...). They predict an above average season. Atlantic basin tropical cyclone activity in 2013 is forecast to be about 30% above the long-term (1950-2012) norm but slightly below the recent 2003-2012 10-year norm. They forecast 15 tropical storms, including 8 hurricanes and three major hurricanes (11, 6 and 3 is 'normal')
