- Saturday 11 am Update Distrubance #1
  • By "Harry W. Hallstrom" <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Sat, 18 Sep 2021 12:21:29 -0400
Greetings All,

Looking at NHC data and high seas reports this disturbance is projected to pass approx. 150 miles to the north of Nev/St.Kitts between Sunday - Monday.
Well away from our area. Winds in 24 hrs are forecast in the 25 kt range. Seas around disturbance are 8 ft. - 12 ft. average wave height.
That means they can be double that height at times.

I doubt any fisherman will be venturing out that far from our shores.

Harry Hallstrom

Greetings All,

The satellite image of disturbance #2 looks worse than it is.
NHC shows it turning North into the Atlantic before it gets anywhere near the Leeward Islands.

- Storm Grace Update 5am
  • By "Harry W. Hallstrom" <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Sat, 14 Aug 2021 09:30:07 -0400
Greetings All.

Reading the latest 5am  NHC report & plotting its path I have Grace passing directly over top of Nevis this evening/early Sunday am.
Nevis/St. Kitts should expect heavy rains & squally conditions tonight. Grace is a rather fast moving storm so things should pass rather quickly.

This is the NHC report.....
For the forecast, recently upgraded Tropical Storm Grace near 
15.8N 55.6W 1007 mb at 5 AM EDT is moving W at 19 kt. Maximum 
sustained winds 35 kt gusts 45 kt. Grace will move to near 16.2N 
58.5W this afternoon, to near 16.9N 61.8W late tonight, to near 
17.7N 64.8W Sun afternoon with maximum sustained winds 45 kt gusts
55 kt, to near 18.3N 67.3W late Sun night

Regards,

Harry

Greetings all,

Another tropical depression is in store for this weekend for the Leeward Islands.
The track seems to say it will pass very close to St.Kitts & Nevis & other eastward islands.
Satellite images show a tightly packed area of storm activity so expect rain and possibly squally conditions as it passes overhead.

Keep a lookout over your shoulder.

- Storm #1 5pm
  • By "Harry W. Hallstrom" <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Mon, 9 Aug 2021 20:38:38 -0300
Greetings All,

Just had another look at NHC discussion & track.
The track still is posted to pass south of Nevis/ST.Kitts BUT......

When I track the actual satellite movement it appears to be tracking almost over St.Kitt & Nevis, IF IT remains on the same course.
So I would be prepared for a good amount of rain and squally weather Tuesday am.

Regards,

Harry



- Low Pressure System #1
  • By "Harry W. Hallstrom" <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Mon, 9 Aug 2021 13:04:59 -0300
Greetings All,

The 8 am NHC report shows this system will pass to the south of the Leeward Islands tonight and move into the Caribbean Sea tomorrow (Tuesday)
NOTE the forecast is calling for the likely hood of heavy rains & flooding for the Leeward Islands.

This is the discussion from NHC.....
1. Showers and thunderstorms have become more concentrated this morning 
in association with a low pressure system located about 150 miles 
east of Barbados. Environmental conditions are expected to be 
conducive for additional development, and a tropical depression is 
likely to form later today or tonight while the low moves 
west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.  The disturbance is forecast to 
reach portions of the Lesser Antilles tonight, then move near the 
Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Tuesday, and be near Hispaniola 
around the middle of this week.  Tropical storm watches or warnings 
could be required today with shorter-than-normal lead times for 
portions of the Lesser Antilles, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto 
Rico.  In addition, heavy rains and flooding are likely for the 
Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.  Interests in 
those areas should monitor the progress of this system.

Regards,

Harry



- Nevis Weather Station Data for July

Greetings All,

Attached weather station data for the month of July for those interested.

From the trend I see this year=, as compared to last year, and the world wide crazy weather patterns from floods & fires.
This year (summer) in the Caribbean is trending cooler than past years. Does that account for so few named storms to date?

Regards,

Harry

Greetings All,

Attached weather data in NOAA format for June 2021 for those interested.

It seems this June was much more comfortable than last year at the same time so I looked back and sure enough.
Have a look at the 90F days last year as compared to this year,  just about half as many.
Does that mean anything? Who knows.


Regards,

Harry

Good afternoon all,

Though many miles to the south of Nevis we are feeling the effects of Hurricane Elsa. Some strong gusty winds up in the Nevis Peak foothills, but as yet no rain/showers.

- TS Elsa & Nevis-St.Kitts
  • By "Harry W. Hallstrom" <hwh888 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Thu, 1 Jul 2021 21:53:09 -0300
Greetings All,

It appears TS Else will have little or no impact on the sister islands.

1. Tropical storm conditions are expected beginning early Friday in
portions of the Windward and southern Leeward Islands, and are
possible over portions of southern Hispaniola on Saturday.

2. Heavy rainfall from Elsa will move quickly across the Windward
and southern Leeward Islands, including Barbados, on Friday. Outer
rain bands will impact Puerto Rico on Friday and southern Hispaniola
by early Saturday. Flooding and mudslides are possible.

Regards,

Harry

  • Date: Wed, 30 Jun 2021 09:15:35 -0300
Greetings All,

There is a Tropical Depression out over the Atlantic moving westward.
Read this notice from the National Hurricane Center below........

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. A broad area of low pressure, associated with a tropical wave, is 
located about midway between the west coast of Africa and the 
Windward Islands.  This system is producing a large area of showers 
and thunderstorms that continues to show some signs of organization. 
Environmental conditions appear generally favorable for development, 
and a tropical depression is likely to form during the next few 
days while the system moves west-northwestward at about 20 mph.  
Interests in the Windward and Leeward Islands should closely 
monitor this system as it will likely be moving through that region 
on Friday.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

Regards,

Harry
