Stormy weather over Cayman

| 14/10/2008

(CNS): After a quiet few weeks in the Atlantic region a number of storms and areas of low pressure are now swirling around the area. the national hurricane centre in Miami was issuing advisories this morning on tropical depression fifteen located about 360 miles southwest of San Juan Puerto Rico and on Tropical Storm Nana about 1175 miles east of the Northern Leeward islands.

With a well-defined area of low pressure centred over the western Caribbean sea about 60 miles northeast of the Nicaragua-Honduras border moving slowly toward the west-northwest shower and thunderstorm activity was increasing it said. The centre predicted a tropical depression could form later today if the system remains over water. The centre noted too that regardless of whether or not this system becomes a tropical cyclone it is likely to produce locally heavy rains over portions of Nicaragua, Honduras and Belize over the next couple of days. The edge of this system is also passing over Cayman bringing plenty of stormy weather over the next few days.

A weak area of low pressure located south-southeast of dissipated Tropical Depression Nana and approximately 1125 mileswest of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands also continues to produce some thunderstorm activity mainly to the east of the centre, however, it will encounter unfavourable upper-level winds as it moves slowly north-north-eastward over the next day or two and significant development is not anticipated.

Cayman is also looking at plenty of stormy weather over the next few days.
