Good morning everyone, Bob The parrot here. I hope you all had a good weekend. As we start this new week we have a Tropical Storm named Douglas currently 480 miles SSW of the Southern tip of Baja California. This storm has winds of 40 mph and is moving to the W-NW at about 9 mph. There are no coastal watches or warnings with this storm presently. Another big weekend for World Cup and Costa Rica keeps winning. Costa Rica is one team that was not given much of a chance at the beginning of the tournament. In another big game the Netherlands defeated Mexico 2-1. The US team plays again tomorrow. Former President Clinton is in Haiti helping them develop their peanut crop.

Good morning and T.G.I.F. everyone. We are still watching that area of cloudiness and disorganized showers and thunderstorms several hundred miles south of Mexico and Central America in the Pacific. We still think this will develop into a low pressure over the weekend and has the potential to become a Tropical Cyclone by the beginning of next week. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you posted on what is happening. St Lucia is reporting that the chicagunda virus has become very bad on the island, the island is spread by masquitos. Big match yesterday in the World Cup, Germany beat the USA 1-0 but the US team still advances to the knockout round. The soccer player who bit the Italian player has been banned from the rest of the tournament. Well that’s all for now, have a great weekend everyone and keep checking back.

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday Checking the weather maps today the only concern is a disturbance several hundred miles south of Mexico and central America causing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. We should see a low pressure forming in a couple days and then we could see the formation of a Tropical Cyclone by late weekend or early next week. We will continue to watch this. Delta will be adding a flight from New York to St. Lucia in December, this is good news. The Pope says he is remaining neutral in the World Cup tournament, even though he is a card carrying member of the Argentina team. Big game today between the USA and Germany. That’s all for now, have a great day everyone
