UPDATE: High Chance of Tropical depression by Tuesday

Tropical wave expected to affect island chain over next 24 hours a separate wave has a high chance of developing into a depression expected to hit islands by mid Tuesday.

8am Update, Saturday 24th August, 2019. Showers and thunderstorms associated with a small area of low pressure located about 950 miles east of the Windward Islands are showing some signs of organization.

Environmental conditions appear conducive for additional development, and a tropical depression is likely to form during the next day or two while the low moves westward to west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.

Conditions appear less favorable for development when the low reaches the Lesser Antilles and eastern Caribbean Sea by the middle of next week. * Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days…high…80 percent.

Residents are therefore advised to be vigilant and to keep updated on this system which is expected to be near the islands by mid Tuesday. 

Weather Forecast valid from 6:00 am

A tropical wave is also projected to move across the island chain during today into tonight. An increase in cloudiness with scattered showers and a chance of isolated thunderstorms can be expected across the area during the next 24 hours.

The Meteorological Service will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates.

    Skerrit must be hoping that it develops into a hurricane and do some havoc in Dominica so he could get some more money and buy some more time in power. He doesn’t a damn with Dominica and who gets affected as long. He is just consumed with being in power and to hell with country and people.

    Let Us be thankful for the break in tropical activity thus far… However, this Tropical disturbance low (invest 99L) needs to be closely monitored indeed. Let us not take anything for granted we do not need any repeats similar to that of Category 5 Hurricane Maria of 2017. May our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ grant protection and deliverance to the Nature Isle of the Caribbean & all Dominicans.

      Let us pray every day for Jesus protection from the ravages of a hurricane season. Let us be aware that only he has the power to control the weather.
