- Invisible Troughs, ... !!
  • By Ian Martin Borde <readkrox51 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Mon, 16 May 2022 11:27:14 -0400
People of Paradise, I'm Sorry to Say,

I don't know.
It seems from the past recent occasions.
Tropical Waves can now form. Affecting and Including Trinidad.
As the Image shows it's more like a Standard Trough or Troughs.

The Barometer Reading for Tropical Eastern Caribbean Waves,
runs through South Western Trinidad.

Enjoy it, while it lasts.

GOD Bless

People of Paradise,


1) Not Just the absence of Tropical Systems.
2) The onslaught of Sahara Dust that has already Started, ...

Will give us a Reprieve to PREPARE for EXTREME SHIFTS 
in Atmospheric Conditions. Dry or Wet Season !!!!!!!

The National Blackout Report was laid for Public Disclosure.
Last Year the strongest Hurricane for the Season passed
out at sea, Thousands of miles from us. And I dare say 
it had the costliest effect on us. EXTREMES !!!!!!

Nobody, I mean Nobody dismisses Climate Change NOW !

Hi, People of Paradise!

Apparently I put the carriage on the cart and 
we can only hope the stallions are ready?
The northerly travels for 2022 and the ITCZ 
has reached the Guyanas.

This latest one will be felt early tomorrow morning 
in southerly isles but the hazardous nature is 48 hours away.

The most important thing weatherwise is?

"In less than 6 weeks the Hurricane season starts".

My Dear People of Paradise,

Like Britain, the former Mother Country,
we in Trinidad and Tobago, are lifting restrictions, ...
For Example; while Carnival 2022 will be held 
WITH RESTRICTIONS this year on next Monday and Tuesday.
Children Must Attend School as usual ! (smle).

I am yet to learn the words to express how Joyous
this has made me and 100's of people I am in contact with.
If it can't get better. It did. 
700,000 have the Full Vaccination Requirement.

The Weather is always reflective of the Mood of Things.
It sets the Environment !
It is Truthful !

Here goes;
There is an actual tropical ITCZ surge beginning to affect 
mostly the southern Eastern Caribbean!!
It has successfully countered the SAL.
That's how strong it is.

Because of the SAL it's too early to forecast 
it's definite 'hazardous' nature.

Like the spring sunshine before the tropical surge.
It's ssooo easy to not remember the 3,500 COVID deaths.

GOD! Rest their Souls, ...

  • Date: Sat, 5 Feb 2022 11:26:42 -0400
T&T and The People of Paradise,

The ACTUAL ITCZ (its uttermost northerly reaches),
is approaching with less than an inch and a half of rain,
within 24 hours. No breeze to talk about (or unusual winter waves).

There seems to be a 30% chance the Body of the wave 
when it reaches 60 West. Will prolong the Precipitation.
With the same chance of it being Hazardous at that time?

The 3rd. Point is that;
Climate Change does not only mean GENERAL Global Warming.
It means UNPREDICTABLE EXTREMES out of Season and Timing.
What I'm trying to say that's obvious is. Stock-up ALWAYS  on WATER.
As in Nevis' Statistics, each year is warmer and dryer with 
prolific rain in between the ultra dry spells.

God Bless but do your part, ...

  • By Ian Martin Borde <readkrox51 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Tue, 21 Dec 2021 13:00:46 -0400
An ITCZ-Wave in the Spirit of Climate Change.
Not a Normal Christmas early morning, soft rain.
Ran into Dry Air (SAL) 12 hours before
Eastern Caribbean Affects. (Localised Affects), ... !!

It is only 60% Hazardous, (in my take), because,
Besides SAL,
It may last as much as two days,
Localised Areas could possibly get 
more than a borderline one inch (of rain).

More than SHARING, beaches have reopened (5:00 - 1200am.)
(and we have a new acting Commissioner of Police)

People are 'Well-Behaved'.
It took three surges to do this.
(and an inordinate percentage of deaths)!!!

God, My Lord!

People of Paradise,
Season's Greetings !

There is a South American 'ITCZ-Trough'
that is a recordbreaker, approaching, ...
Ask San Fernando? They had the brunt of it today.
It is not specially 'hazardous'.
It is non-cyclonic.
It is not Usual !

It is 'Climate Change'.

As proponents like Dr. Jeff Masters and countless others 
(some have died trying), have tried to do.
We DESPERATELY NEED to reassess.
The climate analysis of the 60's and 70's.
For example: 'Wet Season', 'Dry Season' and 'Category 5 Hurricanes'.

A lot has Changed.

Hi Folks,
All the Best !

In T&T, we have an average (my guess) of 7 deaths a day, 
from COVID. That clearly is too High! As one death is a death too much.
So, ... ??????
Let's all be positive and talk about 
'Safe Zones' & Safe-Haven Tourism,
Co-morbidities and Variants,
The CHILDREN and (exclusively Education), inclusively 'Trauma'.
The 'Economy', Digitalisation, Stimulii, Implementation and Controls, ...
which means, The 'New' Normal, with
The New Poverty, The New Economy (Tourism, (Food & Bevg's) and Services),

The Laws for same, which means - 

Then and only then, "Would 'Climate Change' get the Attention it deserves, ... "?


There is a 'TW' tonight and tomorrow moving fast.
Normal Wind (12mph.)
Waves Normal (less than 7'feet)
Water (biggest factor) less than 2" per 14 hour period.

Somebody please recognise the trauma.

Ps. The Sunset attached picture is taken from our correspondent in 'Haiti'.

- (CCTW) Climate Change Tropical Wave -
  • By Ian Martin Borde <readkrox51 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Sat, 9 Oct 2021 08:17:07 -0400
There's so much one person can do!!!!!

There is a ITCZ Trough approaching and already here. (Ask Tobago)?

I don't know if it's deliberately downplayed as with all systems.
But, I can do so much research and no more.
In that light, I'm attaching yesterday's images (computer and internet problems),
And today the problem is more accentuated, ... (Both the TW and Downplaying, ... )

My Take?
While it is slightly more than 50% Hazardous.

Wind Shear, Dry Air and Late Exit,
Make it just another climate change tropical wave with beneficial remedial precipitation.

(it's as if you're waiting for me to post???)

God Bless,

- Marine Vessels Secure Yourselves from NOW !!!!! -
  • By Ian Martin Borde <readkrox51 at gmail.com>
  • Date: Fri, 24 Sep 2021 19:13:26 -0400
My Dearest People of Paradise,

How are you? I hope you are doing Fine !

'SAM' :-

Assumptions: (Working from the Bottom UP !);
Historical Experience of Climate Change:
- 'Water' has taken over from 'Wind' as 'The Fatal Factor'.
- 'Sam' is approx. five (05) Degrees before 50W. (12.5 North). 
- 'Sam' is deemed to be a Major (Cat. 3 or 4) Hurricane.
For clarification of the point of these Assumptions,
Ask The entire Bahamas? 
Who experienced submergence, regardless of the 'eye' of the Storm.

In my calculated opinion, all maritime vessels and crafts 
need to secure themselves before midnight Sunday Morning, . . . !!!
I have some more 'bottom-line' opinions, ...
... , for example, Emergency personnel and equipment 
need to be serviced and readied by Monday Morning 11:30am.

Stop trying to make or save money, during Disasters?

For the last time, "It does not matter where the Eye of The Storm 
passes at closest point. This is Climate Change !"

Preparing with Faith in the Omnipotent

Hi, People of Paradise !

You can imagine, How busy I am?

The 1st. TW approaching with a Centre of Circulation
(and nothing else to Identify it!) Is developing 
a feeder-band (tail). Due to less SAL which
it is doing on its own. At a quasi-stationery 40W.

That's my take. But if you read between the lines,
That is ITCZ exiting, ... !

Not today, but most likely tomorrow, the 
Emerging tail will affect southerly islands,
with localised heavy but short rain.

As I said that's my take during preparations time.

God Bless

With both a Centre of Circulaion, moving into less and less SAL.

The one at 40W. is southerly and dead centre.

The one at 25W. is too early to call but more northerly.

Qu. Can we prepare without panic, surprise and drama?
Ans. The answer is, "Yes!".

is heading a little more vigorously in your direction, ... !!

We had 3.42 ins of rain.

Good morning folks.

I trust that everything is ok with Barbados and St Vincent. Hope that no damage has been done through the passing of hurricane Elsa. Lots of rain Trinidad which began during the night and lasted throughout the morning. Reports of flooding in the southern part of the island. No wind is present at this time.

Best Regards,
Michael Abouhamad

- (Sigh) - Here's to an Overactive 2021

"Would someone please let the pressure out of the 'Steamer'?"
Hello, July 2021
Hello, People of Paradise!

Before I wrote this Post. I was Reading.
I was Reading and Researching, 
capturing images and reading some more, ...
(Started off with Dr. Jeff Masters, by the way!)

Before I was 'Reading', I was 'thinking and praying'.
Enhanced by the river in front of me in the gallery.
Giving it an aspect of 'Unitarian Meditation'?

Anyway, I was more than thinking. I was saying to myself.
"If just south of Barbados is The 1st. Impact Point.
Then why is there no talk of Grenada and Tobago 
getting 20mph (+) plus winds?"
Which science leads me to say. That winds will play 
an equal part to water in this one.

Even though it's 50 West and Designated
My take is: LET'S WAIT on The HURRICANE HUNTERS, ... ?

That way,
"We'll be waiting for an Update!!! Not a downscale".

God Bless

- 40 West & African TW's

Good Day, Good Everything,
People of Paradise

The 1st. (of Significance) Tropical Wave coming from Africa
is medium-large BUT embedded in the ITCZ
with Nascent Circulation.

My Take:
Good News first,I don't see it exiting the ITCZ before 50 West.
Bad News! Because of its size,
When it reaches it will be more than 50% Hazardous.

Trinidad had I believe 3 instances of minor floods already.

BIG Public Shoutout to Isabel. I don't know 'bout you?
But Isabel keeps me Sane and even Calm during Emergencies.

GOD Bless Isabel and all Correspondents, ...

Happy May Flowers,
People of Paradise !

While surrounded by more than a Hint of Wet Season.
Let's remember today as 26 days (less than 4 weeks)
before the Official Start of The Storm / Hurricane Season.

There are ssooo many topics to talk about, . . . .
I had to come out from;
Hibernation/Self Isolation,
Scientific and Rescue Sabbatical. 

Since 2010 and the Haitian Earthquake and Tsunamis

Ok, Then !
There's, ... , COVID,
There's, ... , Vaccinations,
There's, ... , Safe Haven Tourism.

There's Earthquakes, Volcanos, Evacuations, Emigrations.
There's Smoke, Dust, Ash, Lava, Old Craters and New Vents,
There's Poisonous Gases, Liquids and Materials. Water Scarcity.
There's Communications, Security, Solidarity, Relief and Rescue.

To stop! (Distressing, what is Stressful!!!!!)
There's more than one inch of rain, floods, rough seas, rip tides

Thank GOD, nobody reported HIGH WIND, . . . ?

PS. Volcanic Ash is the Best-Known Fertilizer, ....

May God show us the Good in this.
