lets ask mr swellinfo about this.
Take a look at the Swellinfo Caribbean Wave Maps.. Just zoom out to East Coast, then move move to Caribbean...
You will see some development 72+ hours out. This is based on the GFS model. The NHC forecasters aren't mentioning anything yet, so I would give it another 24 hours before thinking too much about this...
Here is the Atlantic Tropical Discussion in the Swellinfo Hurricane Center:
You get there by just clicking on Basin Outlook on the top of the page.
I sure hope we get something.
Yeah the gfs might be a little hopeful at this point but at least its a start. They have been forecasting the same situation for the past couple storms coming out of the Caribbean so if this storm doesnt produce anything maybe next week. Either way its june 4th already we should see some activity here soon!
this is the storm we're watching
All of that convection is over the Pacific Ocean... So, not going to do much in the 48-72 hour time frame, but GFS is still showing development into the Caribbean in the 5-7 day.
The Caribbean is looking like all fair weather right now. Click here for the latest Caribbean Satellite loop from the Swellinfo Hurricane Center:
The NHC update
CLOUDINESS AND SHOWERS OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN ARE
ASSOCIATED WITH A BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE. SIGNIFICANT
DEVELOPMENT IS NOT LIKELY AT THIS TIME. HOWEVER...LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINS ARE EXPECTED TO SPREAD OVER PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AMERICA
DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. THERE IS A LOW CHANCE...LESS THAN
30 PERCENT...OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE
NEXT 48 HOURS.
They seem doubtful this will organize =(
