Re: Weather Odd in Caribbean

That is it. Although it is only on TS that the forecasts are presented. Thank you, dave

Re: Weather Odd in Caribbean

x2 on various recommendations for Stormpulse.

For more detail and technical information, this retired USCG meteorologist gives his daily insight, not always agreeing with NOAA

I find reading his site, because it is so technical, to be "above my head" at times, but do find I am picking up some ability to look to the east, including on the continent of Africa, and spot potential trouble coming.

Stormpulse is a lot easier to follow.

I wrote this software myself just for fun. It here : http://www.sv-jedi.org/sv_jedi/WxDow...stribution.zip

just unzip it and run it just by double clicking it. It creates a subfolder with date&time as name every time you run the download so you get a decent archive without mixing it all up.

ciao!

Cool app, thanks.

Current GFS model run - Maps : Weather Underground - (see post #2) has the system staying low as a Tropical wave and crossing lower Windwards between Grenada and the Grenadines. Maybe increasing to a TD then and interestingly moving across the A.B.C. Islands as a TD or TS then intensifying and going for Belize.
- - If you look at the Sahara Dust Layer it is quite south and also a piece is covering the lower Windwards which normally would keep the system from developing further until it gets west of there.
- - But we are still too far out to get any reasonable amount of certainty in the forecast. Still I would move to Hog Island or Clarkes Court Bay to be ready to move south if things change. Besides "burger nite" with Smokie on the Steel Pans at CCBM on Wednesdays is fun. Last place I would want to be is Prickly Bay (even though I still have a mooring there, or did when I left).

Re: Weather Odd in Caribbean

Check out this satellite series today - Looks like the Windwards are bore-sighted - and - what is that mysterious red coloured system coming up low and very fast from behind . . . Maybe it is one of those extra-dimensional "branes" that the physicists say started the "big bang" . . . headed right for Grenada.

I just received another reason to be in Clarkes Court Bay or Hog Island while waiting out the season. For all of you who wish to get a glimpse of what the cruising life is like in the Islands, check out these YouTubes - the Dinghy Concerts / raft ups in Clarkes Court Bay and especially the ones at Hog Island. For those stuck at home on shore - eat your heart out . . .
