Good morning everyone….what day is it?? Hump Day!!!! I just love to say that….checking the weather things have settled down considerably. Raymond is slowly falling apart in the Pacific and will be nothing more than a low pressure system shortly. Things remain quiet on the Atlantic side with no major storms on the horizon.

Tuesday Thoughts

October 29, 2013

Good morning and happy Tuesday everyone, Bob The Parrot here with some thoughts on this Tuesday. First let’s take a look at the weather scene. Tropical Storm Raymond continues to move through the Pacific. This storm is currently located about 590 miles SW of the southern most point of Baja, California with winds of 60 mph and movement to the North at 5 mph. There are no watches or warnings with this storm and we should see it weaken over the next several days as it pushes into colder Pacific waters. Don’t forget if you are in San Juan Puerto Rico the big black and blue gala for muscular dystrophy will be held on November 8th at the Ritz Carlton. Also a reminder that if you are not currently receiving One Caribbean Television, call your cable provider and ask them if they would please add it to your lineup. Well that’s it for now, keep checking back and have a great day.

Monday Mumblings

October 21, 2013

Good morning everyone, Bob The Parrot here. Great to be back after a little rest and relaxation the past couple weeks. Joey and I have a couple things we want to pass along to you concerning the weather front…there is a low pressure currently about 650 miles E-SE of Bermuda that is showing signs of organization, this is worth keeping an eye on over the next couple of days. There is also Hurricane Raymond off the coast of Mexico currently 265 miles W-SW of Acapulco Mexico with winds of 120 mph and moving slowly to the North at 2 mph. Heavy rains reported this weekend in the Lesser Antillies however we have been fairly lucky with the number of hurricanes only 2 have formed in the Atlantic so far this year and we have only about one and a half months to go. Keep in mind 2 of the strongest hurricanes ever,Wilma and Mitch formed in late October so we will have to continue to watch closely. Saw an interesting note the other day about the number of Americans visiting the island of Cuba is up considerably. Also Sir Richard Branson has moved to his home in the BVI on a permanent basis. Well that’s all for today, it is great to be back with you. Have a great day everyone.

Thursday Thoughts

October 3, 2013

Good morning everyone, Bob The Parrot here wishing you all a great Thursday. Well that system we have been watching in the Caribbean has now moved into the SE Gulf of Mexico and has developed into a Tropical Storm (Karen) as we thought it might. They are in the process of putting all the data together on this storm so that is all I can tell you at this writing. I can tell you that Tropical Depression Jerry is still out in the Atlantic about 985 miles WSW of the Azores. He has winds of 35 mph and is moving toward the NE at 9 mph, there are no watches or warnings with this storm and it is expected to be a remnant low by the weekend. Well that’s it for now, keep checking back and have a great day.

Wednesday Updates

October 2, 2013

Good morning…what day is it? Hump Day!!!! Hi everyone, Bob The Parrot here with my sidekick Joey Stevens. Looking over the weather today we have two areas that we are watching. The first is an area of low pressure in the NW Caribbean Sea that is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. This system will move toward the Yucatan Peninsula today and then move into the southern gulf of Mexico tonight or tomorrow. Look for locally heavy rains in the Cayman Islands, portions of Cuba and the Yucatan Peninsula over the next day or two. We are also watching Tropical Storm Jerry which is located about 1275 miles East of Bermuda. This storm has winds of 40 mph and is moving very slowly to the west at 1 mph. There are no watches or warning with this storm at this time. Wltt that’s it for now, keep checking back and have a wonderful day.
