- Tropical Waves and SAL

Good day all,

Dry and dusty Saharan Air Level is still an issue and not unusual for this time of year.

Antigua Met Services posted the following:

Saharan Dust Air Quality Bulletin
Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services  10:30 AM Tuesday 19 June 2018  

Air Quality Index (AQI) Based on Particulate Matter 2.5 (PM2.5) and 10 (PM10)

Concentration   Synopsis:

A new surge in Saharan Dust continues to stream across the area. It will continue to do so through Sunday June 24. Air quality will remain at moderate levels for the period, but at the lower end of the scale. Visibility will be slightly reduced.    

Alert Level: II   Location: Antigua and Barbuda
AQI: 50 to 65  
AQI category: Moderate  
Timing: Until Sunday 
Sensitive groups: People with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly and children are the groups most at risk.
Health implications: Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.  
Caution: Unusually sensitive people such as active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged or heavy exertion.

Keep monitoring.   Dale Destin

Sea surface temperatures are below average for this time of year in the Tropical Atlantic. With the dry air this helps to reduce the formation of any tropical disturbance in the Atlantic.

The old tropical wave conveyor belt from West Africa to the Americas is working well (see attached). Conditions at present are not favourable regarding tropical storm development but it does make for cloudy days.


Overcast, dry and humid best describes the weather on Nevis today.


Keep watching as we move further into the hurricane season.

- Wet afternoon

Good night all,

We have had to odd shower overnight recently, but this afternoon the showers/drizzle have given us some wet stuff. Measured about 10.2mm of rain today and the temperature dropped to about 22C, so a little chilly in the Nevis Peak foothills.

The weather had been more unsettled further south.

Nice to have this little break in the 'dry season'.

- Another Year......

Good morning everyone,

In Nevis it is still pretty dry which is no surprise as it is the "Dry Season". The cruise season is at an end and the "Snow Birds" do their usual migration north.

The forecasts for the 2018 hurricane season have started to appear and indicate storm activity to be above average.

I have attached the storm names for this year and also some good words from Dr Rick Knabb as a thought for the season.

Greetings All,

As recorded data shows, very little in way of rain for the month.
