- Back to Dry

Good day all,

After yesterday's wet weather, today has been dry with hazy sunshine. So the effects of the tropical wave have passed us by. The hazy conditions are probably due to Saharan dust, but it is not as bad as we have recently experienced.

The next tropical wave is due to arrive on Saturday, so it will be interesting to see how it performs.

Colorado State University has upped it's prediction of named storms from 19 in June to 20 for the Atlantic hurricane season. Five so far, with none being strong or prolonged, but we press onward towards the peak of the season. Things can change so plan and prepare.

- Active Tropical Wave
  • By Frank Goodwill <nevis.storm at hotmail.com>

Good day all,

The tropical wave arrived and gave us some showers, mainly during Tuesday afternoon. Up in the Nevis Peak foothills I recorded just over an inch of rain for the day. The showers were accompanied with rumbles of thunder and some gusty winds. 

Some further showers are forecast for Wednesday - we shall see.

Photos attached of afternoon views.

Good evening all,

We have had a short sharp shower over night, but it remains dry here  A fairly active tropical wave is passing through the area and winds have become more gusty this afternoon. Here up in the Nevis Peak foothills winds have averaged about 9 mph with a gust measuring 27 mph.

Tomorrow's forecast indicates a moderate chance of showers, so we will see how much wet stuff that will bring. Hopefully something more than cloud cover 

There is still some Saharan dust around so the view is a little hazy.

On the Covid-19 front the borders are still closed to commercial passenger arrivals. After 76 days of being case free, a returning national who came in from Washington DC, USA, has tested positive. This was at the end of their 14 day quarentine in St. Kitts. They have now been put into isolation and will hopefully make a full recovery.

- Less Dust but with Showers
  • By Frank Goodwill <nevis.storm at hotmail.com>
  • Date: Wed, 24 Jun 2020 10:37:25 -0400
Good morning everyone,

The unhealthy plume of Saharan dust has weakened. As we now have a tropical wave passing over us. This has resulted in some welcomed showers this morning. No doubt it will clean out the atmosphere, so it will be interesting to see how much dust is deposited on the car.
It is feeling fresher up here in the Nevis Peak foothills.
Another plume of Saharan dust is forecast for the end of the week, so we will see how that goes.

- Saharan Dust

  • Date: Sat, 20 Jun 2020 17:04:26 -0400
Good day all,

As reported elsewhere on StormCarib we are being effected by dry air/Saharan dust. The tropical wave conveyor belt is up and running from Africa to the Caribbean, with a wave passing over us at the moment. We had a short shower/drizzle this morning with no major impact. The dry air is surpressing shower activity. Attached are a couple of pictures of the cloud and haze. Also a forecast graphic of the dust cloud.

- Some Wet Stuff Today
  • By Frank Goodwill <nevis.storm at hotmail.com>
  • Date: Sun, 14 Jun 2020 22:25:53 -0400
Good day all,

Today started off as a "Sunny Sunday" but as the morning turned into afternoon we had some light showers. No enough of the wet stuff to make a difference but it lowered the temperature and the breeze picked up a bit. 

One advantage of being up in the Nevis Peak foothills is that it is a bit cooler anyway.

I managed to get the old weather station working again. More of a newer weather station now. Web link below 

There were 15 cases of Covid-19 in St. Kitts and Nevis, all of whom recovered without any complications. There have been no further cases for over a month and this has led to the restrictions being eased skowly. We should wear a face mask/covering when in a public place. Going into a bank with a mask on is strange. Our borders are still closed to tourists and visitors at present 

Attached are the present Covid-19 restrictions and a Nevis view.

Good day all,

Another early start to the season in May. Invest 98L kicking things off between Florida and Cuba. Could result in a named storm #Arthur at the weekend.

Meanwhile blue sea and blue sky in Nevis, though a little hazy.
