It is in mid Atlantic and heading West.  I will keep an eye on it.

A tropical wave is approaching the island. Expect some rain later

Hi all,

Wow, just been looking at my swimming pool. It is almost overflowing.

No cyclone activity forecast in the next 48 hours. But it might be interesting to see if this wave builds as it goes into the Caribbean?

Constant rain has produced some bad flooding on the Island today....hope it doesn't keep up too much longer.

Stay safe

- Plenty of showers

Well we certainly have had plenty of showers today as the tropical wave passes over us. More to follow if the charts are correct. Here in Hope it has been quite soggy today. Short sharp showers just enough to piss one off when one is trying to work. Oh well I guess it is beginning of the rainy season. Loved the weather forecast today. 50% chance of rain............


- Chris & Beryl - both tropical storms at the same time!
  • By Chris Bolt <gommier at gmail.com>

Beryl is approaching The Northern half of the island chain. Chris is off the East coast of the USA.

Hopefully neither will do any harm. Maybe Chris will bring some much needed rain to the UK late next week?

All the best for Dominica and neighbouring islands.

- Beryl has reduced to Tropical storm
  • By Chris Bolt <gommier at gmail.com>

With the centre of Beryl due to pass through the chain near Dominica, more than 300 miles north of us, Grenada probably won't even know it has passed. Let us now hope that it does not build back to a Hurricane. All the best to Dominica.

- It looks like Beryl's predicted path has moved slightly South
  • By Chris Bolt <gommier at gmail.com>
  • Date: Sat, 7 Jul 2018 09:14:57 +0100

The predicted path of Beryl now seems to centre over Martinique. That is slightly further south than yesterday's predictions. But the good news is it (sorry she) is predicted to only be a Tropical Storm as it passes North of Barbados.

It also looks like the Tropical depression off of the East coast of the USA is likely to become Tropical Storm 'Chris' very soon. Only a few models have that becoming a hurricane later in the week.

- Welcomed rain

It is raining pretty heavily in St. George's now due to the approach of a tropical wave. We've been having water problems do the rain is welcomed

- Sargasso weed returning?
  • By "Richard and Jenita" <richardandjenita at spiceisle.com>
  • Date: Wed, 25 Apr 2018 11:29:33 -0400

Noticed when I went swimming yesterday that more than normal weed was washing up on the east side of the island again. Today I notice a large amount of it floating in to shore. Looks like the Sargasso sea is giving up more it again. Is this happening on other islands down the chain?
