I don't want to freak any one out right at the moment but there is a pretty impressive disturbance just east of Barbados. It's pretty huge right now and could weaken once getting in to the Caribbean but could always gain strength. Just want to keep everyones alert up not quite out of this late hurricane season.

It's not over until it's over and that's officially Nov. 30.
Thanks for the heads up, now that I have everything back in place after the Chinese fire drill for Gonzalo. Hate hurricane season.

I talked to Dr. Gray this morning ( I currently live in fort collins colorado, CSU) and he is pretty concerned about this storm. He is so excited for me to move down there this summer and be able to give him live updates, but he wanted me to give a heads up because the storm near florida is taking up all the news right now.

Which storm are you referring to? The only one of note right now is Invest 93L which is forecast to bring heavy rains to Florida but doesn't affect us.

Just clouds. Not a low, not a storm, not a disturbance. Just clouds.

its actually a tropical wave which is the beginnings of a depression and it is huge so it is something to be watching

The tropical wave has been designated a low now, at 1009mb.

tropical wave now a low

I will watch it but it is so low that it probably won't hit us even it it forms.

Most likely it will track across Barbados and T+T and then toward the ABC islands.

But it bears watching, for sure, if at the very least to have an early heads up.

Rotorhead, as much as you love to lecture and quote, what on earth has this to do with a discussion on whether or not there is something out there which bears watching?

For whatever it's worth I agree with islandjoan about this one. Enough paranoia is encouraged when something pops off the coast of Africa thousands of miles away and something which might turn into a tropical wave or depression is hardly worth getting everyone's knickers in a twist about when the trajectory hardly puts us in danger. Anybody who lives here knows to be prepared during hurricane season; you do the best you can and then wait and see. Fussing and fretting and turning on the weather channel every five minutes accomplishes nothing.

Sorry, but after going through two major hurricanes here I get a little testy!

As I recall Dr. Grey was always correcting his predictions, after the fact.

I am set for an STJ visit November 13. What would the time frame be for this storm. How long do these storms usually take to make their way to the Caribbean?
