Tropical storm Ophelia Heads To Anguilla

Anguilla-Weather.com reports Tropical storm Ophelia will reach Anguilla Saturday night, Monday morning.

The forecasted winds of 40 mph or so will be to the north of center along with thunderstorms.

It is not expected to escalate into a hurricane.

Of course, with several days to go, the storm track and severity could deviate considerably.

Steve also says that we’ve had record rainfall in 3 of the past 4 months.

That must be why my Dad’s so worried about his cactus collection!

As Anguilla-Beaches.com points out on this page about Anguilla weather in August and September, things could be worse.

Bottom line… unless matters start intensifying, expect nothing more than some heavy rain and wind over the weekend.

I will update if matters do start to look worse.

Stay dry.

Atlantic Storms and Anguilla

Just a heads up re: the now 4 Atlantic storms being tracked.

The one of concern to us is Storm 93L which is still over 2,100 miles to our east.

Current thought is the storm in front of 93L (slower moving Storm 92L) could be absorbed into 93L (but no matter – 92L is currently not a threat).

Although too far for any accurate forecast, models call for it to track over the northern islands sometime Tuesday/Wed. without reaching hurricane status.  But it is a large storm and we should expect at least rain and some squalls mid-week.

Keep checking http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/index.shtml every 6 hours for updates.

More this weekend if conditions warrant.  Here’s the latest satellite/model tracks:
