Monday Updates

September 30, 2013

Good morning everyone, Bob The Parrot here. Hope you all had a great weekend. As we start the week we are watching a couple areas of concern on the weather front. A broad are of low pressure about 200 miles S-SW of Jamaica is laying down showers and thunderstorms. This system is very disorganized and looks like a low chance of development into a Tropical Cyclone over the next 48 hours. There will be heavy rains for Haiti and Jamaica today with those rains moving toward The Cayman Islands and Cuba on Tuesday. We are also watching a Tropical Depression approximately 1375 miles W-SW of the Azors. This storm has winds of 35 mph and is moving East at 5 mph. There are no current watches or warnings with this storm. It will continue to show slow and erratic movement over the next couple days. Well that’s all for now, have a great day and keep checking back.

Friday Rumblings

September 27, 2013

Good morning everyone, Bob The Parrot here…TGIF….the only day Joey and I like better then today is Saturday!!! LOL Looking at the weather map this Friday morning we see a Tropical Wave associated with low pressure sitting about 1000 East of the Lesser Antillies, this system is moving toward the N-NW at 10-20 mph. It looks like this system will be very slow to develop if it develops at all, right now we would say there is a low chance of this developing into a tropical cyclone however we will continue to watch it’s progress over the weekend. Some great news for Haiti, looks like Toms Shoes will be producing their product on the island for the next 5 years…this will mean at least 100 new jobs. Well that’s all for now, keep checking back and have a great weekend everyone.

Liat airlines the carrier for the Caribbean has a new CEO, this will be an interesting story to follow. Shaggy has a new album out, he feels this is his best. It has 13 tracks and is entitled “Out of Many, One Music”…. On the weather front there are no major storms to talk about, remember the official season goes until November 31st. If you do not receive One Caribbean Televison why not call your cable operator and ask them to add it to your lineup? Big news for all the sailing crowd…America had a big comeback and won the America’s Cup race. Well that’s all for now, have a great day and keep checking back with us.

Good morning everyone, Bob The Parrot here. It is great to be back, Joey and I were in San Juan Puerto Rico for a couple days and had a wonderful time. We were at the 60th Annual International Bill Fish Tournament. The tourney was a huge success breaking all records. There were some 48 boats representing 8 countries and there were 150 Blue Marlin caught and released…it was an amazing couple of days!!! Joey also had a chance to play golf at the Royal Isabela golf club, he says it was without a dought the hardest 18 holes he has ever played (of course Joey finds miniature golf challenging)….on the weather front today I am glad to say there are no storms in the Atlantic or the Pacific, let’s hope it stays that way for awhile. Well that’s it for now, keep checking back and have a wonderful day.

Wednesday Updates

September 18, 2013

Good morning and happy Wednesday everyone. Joey and I will be headed to Puerto Rico tomorrow and will be returning to this spot next week. I want to update you on a couple weather related issues today. Tropical Storm Humberto is turning to the North and this is a good sign. Currently located about 1050 miles W-SW of the Azors with winds of 40 miles per hour. There are no watches or warnings issued right now. We are a little more concerned with a broad area of low pressure over the western coast of the Yucatan Peninsula that will be moving into the Bay of Campeche and the Southeastern Gulf of Mexico over the next couple days. This system has a high chance of developing into a Tropical Cyclone. This system will bring heavy rains to Eastern Mexico and this could result in flooding and deadly mudslides. That’s all for now, keep checking back and we will see you when we get back from our trip.

Thoughts From Tuesday

Good morning everyone, Bob The Parrot here. It’s good to be back if only for a short time, Joey and I will be headed to Puerto Rico on Thursday for the big Bill Fish Tournament. On the weather front we still have Tropical Storm Humberto churning across the Atlantic. This storm is about 1150 miles WSW of the Azors with winds of 40 mph and moving to the N-NE at 5 mph. There are no watches or warnings at this time with this storm. We are also watching a broad area of low pressure over Belize and the southern Yucatan Peninsula producing clouds and thunderstorms. This storm will move over the Bay of Campeche later tonight and tomorrow and could develop into something. Finally we are still watching remnants of Ingrid over the Eastern mountains of Mexico, this storm could still produce some flooding. Well that’s all for today, keep checking back and have a great day everyone.

Good morning everyone, thanks for checking back. Bob The Parrot here with my sidekick Joey. By the way we will be gone Friday and Monday from the weather center. Bringing you up to date on what is happening, Gabrielle is moving away from Bermuda, she is located about 190 miles W-NW of Bermuda with winds of 35 mph and moving in a NW direction at 7 mph. There are no watches or warnings with this storm. The other big storm we are watching is Hurricane Humberto, this storm is currently 440 miles NW of the Cape Verde Islands with winds of 85 mph and moving north at about 14 mph. There are no watches or warnings with this storm right now. We are also watching a couple other areas, one is a broad area of low pressure 500 miles east of the Leeward Islands, this system seems to be very slow in development and does not seem to be a big worry right now. One more area of concern would be a low in the Bay of Campeche, this system is favorable for development. Expect heavy rain for eastern Mexico over the next several days and be aware that flash flooding and mud slides could be a problem. Well that’s all for now, as always you can get complete details and updates on One Caribbean Television….if you are not receiving this station call your cable provider and ask them if they would add it to your lineup. Have a great day everyone and keep checking back.
