Monday Update

October 31, 2016

Good morning everyone and Happy Halloween!! BOO!!!! Have you looked at the calendar, this is the last day of October. Joey and I hope you had a nice weekend. Checking the weather maps on this last day of October we don’t see any problems as well as storms are concerned. There will be numerous showers and thunderstorms around, especially this evening so you might want to check before you head out on your destination. I am waiting to hear how the music festivals went this weekend on Granada and Antigua and Barbuda. Things are heating up in the US as we are only one week away from voting for a new president. It is a process about two years in the making and by the end most people just want to see it over!!! Well, that’s all for now, have a great start to the week everyone and keep checking back.

Good morning everyone. Well we have come to the end of another week and I hope you all have a great weekend ahead. Not a whole lot to talk about today, checking the weather maps, there are no major storms to talk about and we don’t expect any development over the weekend, we will continue to monitor the situation however. That storm we have been watching in the pacific has been slowly falling apart and poses no threat to anyone. Have a great weekend everyone.

That said, we have a late season storm in the Pacific that we have been watching the past couple days. Hurricane Seymour is located about 8 20 miles S-SW of the southern tip of Baja, California with winds of 90 mph and is moving to the N-NW at 12 mph. There are no coastal watches or warnings with this storm and it appears to be weakening rapidly. We expect this storm to be a Tropical Storm later today and a remnant low by Friday.

Friday Update

October 21, 2016

Good morning everyone and T.G.I.F. We are on the doorstep of another weekend and according to the calendar closing in on another month. Checking the weather maps this morning, there are no major storms to report on. That system influencing the Bahamas yesterday has moved to the north off the North Carolina coast. We do not think that will materialize into anything more. Just a reminder, if there is something going on where you live and you would like to share it, please send it along to us at One Caribbean television. Have a great weekend everyone and keep checking back with us.

Thursday Thoughts

October 20, 2016

Good morning everyone, thanks for checking back with us on this Thursday. We are watching an elongated area of low pressure currently about 300 miles E-NE of the central Bahamas that is moving to the NW at about 10 mph. This system is laying down a large area of clouds and rain. This system could develop into something more tropical over the next day or two so it will be worth watching. Look for locally heavy rain today in Hispaniola and Puerto Rico. Just a couple reminders, if you have an event going on in the Caribbean, let us know so we can pass it along to our readers. Also, you can get completed Caribbean forecasts and great Caribbean programming daily on One Caribbean Television. If you are not currently receiving the station, contact your local cable provider and ask them if they might add it to your lineup. Well, that’s all for now, have a great day everyone.

Wednesday Update

October 19, 2016

Good morning everyone, happy hump day! Looking at the calendar, hard to believe another month is almost gone. Checking the weather maps this morning, there are no major storms to report on. There is an area of low pressure to the east and northeast of the Turks and Caicos Islands that is putting down a large area of clouds and showers. This may try to develop into something stronger over the next several days so we will keep our eye on it and let you know if anything happens. It’s getting to that time of year when we will be seeing more cruise ships and visitors to the islands as folks look to escape the cooler temps of home. Well, that’s all for now, have a great day everyone and keep checking back with us.

Monday Update

October 17, 2016

Good morning everyone, hope you had a really nice weekend. As we start this new week, things are fairly quiet on the weather front compared to the past several weeks. Nicole continues to push further into the Atlantic and poses no real threat to anyone. There is a little disturbance in the Bahamas that is producing some clouds and showers, we will continue to monitor this as we head into the week. There are several news items I wanted to bring to your attention as we start the week. News from Barbados says that the government is examining the possible use of marijuana for medical purposes. Congratulations to St Lucia’s famous resort jade Mountain. Jade has been selected by the US Green Building Council as the first resort in the Caribbean to receive the coveted LEED GOLD certification status. Joey and I stayed at this beautiful resort many years ago, it was fantastic. Finally we want you to mark your calendars for a big event coming up at the end of the month on Antigua and Barbuda. Gospel fest will be held October 30th and promises to be a wonderful event. Well, that’s all for today, have a good day everyone and keep checking back with us.
