Tropical Storm could impact Antigua by weekend


The Met office says the weather forecast is “not looking good” as there is an increased possibility that a Tropical Storm could impact us on the weekend.

The office is urging all to “please monitor and complete your hurricane plan.”

A system approaching the islands now have an 80 percent chance of developing.

Recent satellite-derived wind data indicate that the well-defined Low-pressure system located about 750 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing winds to near tropical storm force close to the center.

Showers and thunderstorms have increased and become a little better organized over the past several hours and, if this recent development trend continues, a tropical depression or a tropical storm could form later today or on Wednesday.

The low is expected to move slowly westward today, and then move toward the west-northwest at 10 to 15 mph by tonight and on Wednesday.

Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent.

Formation chance through 5 days…high…80 percent.
