- WIND - BUT LITTLE RAIN
  • By "Steve Donahue" <tainos at anguillanet.com>
  • Date: Mon, 9 Jul 2018 09:43:04 -0400

Few little showers overnight but totaled only 0.08 in.  Wind is 14-18 mph with a gust this morning of 31.  We really need the rain but not looking good for the rest of the day.  Doppler shows most of the rain to our south and falling apart before getting anywhere near us.

- HURRICANE BERYK & ANGUILLA
  • By "Steve Donahue" <steve at anguilla-weather.com>
  • Date: Fri, 6 Jul 2018 09:23:31 -0400

Only change from yesterday – TS Beryl is now hurricane Beryl. (Humm – remember 80 mph Bertha, 8 July, 1996?)  This means it will be a cat 1 hurricane (MAYBE cat 2) when it encounters strong wind shear at 50 W degrees and will quickly weaken from there.  But not much concern for AXA – will pass over Dominica to our south late Sunday/early Monday and pass about 170 miles to our SSE as a possible weak TS or less.  It’s a rather small storm with TS force winds currently extending out only about 35-50 mi. to the N.  And because it’s so small, probably nothing more than a passing shower for us.  Could be some rough surf on the south facing beaches.

 

Continue to monitor at https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/ but noting further unless major change in track.  Cheers,

- INVEST 95L & ANGUILLA
  • By "Steve Donahue" <steve at anguilla-weather.com>
  • Date: Thu, 5 Jul 2018 12:24:08 -0400

Invest 95 L in the far eastern Atlantic will likely form into a tropical depression shortly and then a possible tropical storm in the next few days.  However, the system will encounter very strong wind shear once it reaches 50 degrees west Saturday, and all models call for it to then start to weaken.  Could bring widespread showers/thunderstorms once it reaches the islands, but forecasted to cross over the islands to our south.  Right now, a slim possibility of widespread shower/thunderstorm for Anguilla Sunday night/Monday, but not looking good for some much needed rain at this point.

 

As always, keep an eye out on this system (https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/) – especially over the weekend – but no further updates unless the forecast changes.

 

Cheers,

- April Rain, roughly

Good Evening all,
The rainfall on the Searocks in April was roughly .95 of an inch, my kind 
Canadian neighbour read my rain gauge but I am not exactly sure of the dates.
Here in the UK everyone  is in wedding fever, I wish Prince Harry and Meghan 
Markle the very best and much happiness.  Goodness knows it must be a hard life 
in the media eye all the time.
I attach, just for interest 2 pics, one of our native Fell Ponies sleeping in 
the sun, and I can’t resist showing the small brown dog (Border Terrier) in her 
natural habitat.
Have a great evening,
Joanie Howard,
Little Bay Barn

- April Rain

Good Evening to all of the Stormcarib Family,
Sadly last week I had to leave my warm happy house in Anguilla and return to the mud, rain and sleet  in the north of England. There is still snow on the tops of the hills, and they say here, that when some snow sticks it is waiting for more. I do hope not. My kindly neighbour on the Searocks has checked my rain gauge and says there was 70mm in it, Witch I think is 2.35 inches, we desperately needed it., 
After 2 car rides, 2 taxi rides, 2 ferries, I transatlantic flight and 5 trains small brown dog and I got back. I attach a pic of small brown dog surveying the white cliffs of Dover.
My best to all,
JH
