- Saturday morning & Fiona

Greetings All,

Fiona is still with us but center of storm has passed over the Caribbean chain of islands. Lots of gusty winds and rain showers. It appears more heavy rain in swinging this way from out of the south, back side of storm as it moves away. No sun today and maybe tomorrow as well.
Else all is well.

Good night all

Latest from our grid supplier NEVLEC

Due to the passage of Tropical Storm Fiona, the NEVLEC Transmission System is 
being adversely affected by strong winds and lightning. We are doing our best 
to maintain Electricity Supply in all areas. However, as conditions worsen we 
will need to curtail supply in order to ensure public safety and avoid 
equipment damage. 

We encourage all customers to continue to take the usual precautions and stay 
safe as the storm passes.

- T.S. Fiona - power out

Good night all, 

We have an island wide power outage at the moment so any reporting will be limited. Not sure if this is due to the storm though.

The Meteo France 🇫🇷 Guadeloupe is starting to reveal the rain field to the east of the centre of the storm. Lots of wet stuff! Looks as if the centre of the storm has passed Guadeloupe.

Stay safe.

Good night all,

Fiona has had to struggle with wind shear interacting with its front (west) face. As a result it has been a bit ragged. Moving to the west at about 15 mph and centred around Guadeloupe. Today has been cloudy with the occasional shower. Winds haven’t been to bad (see attached - related to the Hermitage area). Looking at the Meteo France 🇫🇷 Guadeloupe rain radar (see attached), the punch to the storm is on its eastern side. Some of that may be dragged around the northern side by the storms circulation so it could become wetter later tonight.

More later

- Fiona 5 pm Update
  • By H Hallstrom <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Fri, 16 Sep 2022 17:48:16 -0400
Greetings All,

Nothing seems to have changed since last NHC report.
All is quiet on Nevis, some showers now & then.
A little breeze here & there.
The storm pressure is pretty much remaining the same hour to hour.
If anything is going to happen, it will be in the nighttime hours.

Tropical Storm Fiona is centered near 16.2N 60.3W at 16/1800 UTC 
or 65 nm E of Guadeloupe moving W at 12 kt. Estimated minimum 
central pressure is 1005 mb.

- Fiona 11 am update
  • By H Hallstrom <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Fri, 16 Sep 2022 12:02:22 -0400
Greetings All,

As of the NHC 11am report the westward direction has shifted to a more Northerly direction. The track shifted from 260 deg to 275 deg.

That will move the storm closer to our location, how much?
I’ll recalculate after the 3pm report from NHC. The storm radius extends outward approx 75 miles from its center. So I’m guessing we will see windy conditions. The probability charts still remain at 45 mph for us.

- Fiona Storm 8 am
  • By H Hallstrom <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Fri, 16 Sep 2022 09:35:47 -0400
Greetings All,

Another look at position and based on last 24 hours tracking the storm is passing even further south of SKB/NEV.
Its  path has been 260 deg, 10 degrees south of true West. That will place the path over Dominica. Approx 120 miles south of our location.

NHC still predicting 3-6 inches of rain for our area.
Hard to see any big 45-50 mph winds for our area.
Looks to be more south around Dominica and Guadeloupe.

- Latest 8 pm Update from NHC
  • By H Hallstrom <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Thu, 15 Sep 2022 21:22:21 -0400
Greetings All,

Latest data from HNC and a Hurricane Hunter Flight to measure. As of 8 pm Thursday, the storm's center is about 430 miles to our East.
Moving at about 14 MPH direct for SKB & NEV. That will put the center slightly South of our islands about Midnight Friday night.

Expect affects well before that time. Being in the Northern quadrant of the storm.
NHC predictions put us in the 41 MPH sustained winds probability zone. They don't show anything greater, but gusts to 50-60 mph are possible.

Expect heavy rains and low level flooding. Can't find any info on projected rain fall amounts. Heavy rains, to me, means 4-6 inches or more.
If they appear during daytime hours, STAY off the road. Obviously at night, for sure, stay home.

Will post again at the 11 am NHC report if anything has changed.


Regards,

Harry

Still on track to pass over us. 

Stay tuned.

- Depression Seven Update
  • By H Hallstrom <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Wed, 14 Sep 2022 19:27:37 -0400
Greetings All,

Just had another look at the Atlantic and since last post the depression, #Seven has changed a bit.
Its track is now moving west and located 700 nm to the east of the Leeward Islands. Which puts us in its path.

Projected path & time will put #Seven over us Friday morning. Expect windy conditions 35-40 knots.
Seas are at present 10-12 feet.

There is a very small area in the NE quadrant registering 50 knots & possible higher.
That appears to pass north of our area.

So expect windy and rainy conditions for Friday.

Regards,

Harry

- Looks like rain coming
  • By H Hallstrom <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Mon, 12 Sep 2022 12:56:02 -0400
Greetings All,

It looks like rain will be the forecast by this coming end of week/weekend.
Indicated path & discussion says windward islands on its present path, but what I see it will be shared between lee wards & wind wards.
Doesn't appear to be a storm of any consequence per NHC.

Will have another look mid-week or end of week.

Regards,

Harry

Greetings All,

This has to be the slowest moving disturbance ever. Seems like it will never pass us.
We are on the very very edge of it. May or may not see much of any rain from this.
But a tropical shower can develop any time, disturbance or no disturbance.

Harry

- Moving above us........
  • By H Hallstrom <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Mon, 29 Aug 2022 10:21:36 -0400
Greetings All,

The approaching tropical disturbance looks to be passing north of the leewards.
Looking at satellite images we will be on the "edge" of things and even then it doesn't look to be much of a rainmaker.

The next one, now just moving off Africa, is projected to move further north of leewards as it moves across the Atlantic.

Will keep a watch on events as they develop, especially this time of year.

Greeting All,

Another look at things and there is nothing to report.
No threat, most likely no rain.

- Tropical Atlantic post
  • By H Hallstrom <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Sun, 7 Aug 2022 09:15:18 -0400
Greetings All,

NHC post this am...........
1. Eastern Tropical Atlantic: 
A tropical wave located just off the west coast of Africa is 
producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the far 
eastern tropical Atlantic. Environmental conditions appear generally 
conducive for gradual development of this system while it moves 
westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph across the eastern 
and central tropical Atlantic, and a tropical depression could form 
around the middle part of this week. 
Looking at steering winds, if anything developes it will move well north of the Leewards and surrounding area.
Will post again if any changes else just continue to watch things.

Harry
