The St. Kitts Meteorological Services is monitoring an area of disturbance in the mid Atlantic Ocean moving over last 24hours. It has not become better organized today. However, conditions are still favorable for a tropical cyclone to form within the next day or two as the system moves to west or west northwestward at about 10 – 15mph. It is expected to continue in this general motion for some time.
Based on the information analysed at 2pm (Tuesday 4th July 2017) this system will be in the vicinity of the northern Leeward Islands by this weekend. The early projections are for it to pass to the northeast of the federation.
It is too early to determine what impacts are likely if any at all but we at the St. Kitts Met Office will continue to monitor this area of disturbed weather and provide updates throughout this week. As the system is some distance away, some changes in its path and or potential impact are possible and as such updates will be provided daily until it passes the federation.
At this time there are NO advisories in place for this weather disturbance.
