Tropical wave may churn up season’s first storm

| 24/06/2010

(CNS):  The Cayman Islands can expect heavy rains over the next two days. The National Hurricane Centre in Miami says that the tropical wave moving south of Cayman still has a 40% chance of becoming a tropical storm. According to the centre’s website the air force reserve unit reconnaissance aircraft mission to investigate the area today (Thursday) has been cancelled and upper-level winds are expected to become more conducive for development as it moves westward or west-northwestward around 10 mph over the next couple of days. 

Cayman’s National Weather Service forecasts increasing cloudiness and showers on Thursday with more significant rain on Friday. The local weather service is also predicting gusty winds and rough seas around the heavy showers.
