Weather Disturbance Could Impact St. Kitts-Nevis By Friday

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The St. Kitts Meteorological Services is monitoring two areas of disturbance associated with low pressure areas in the mid Atlantic Ocean that could affect the federation by this weekend.

The closest one to the island chain is about 900 nautical miles due east of the Leeward Islands and is moving westerly at about 15mph to 20mph.


The disturbance continues to produce disorganized showers and a few thunderstorms. Upper-level winds are forecast to become a little more conducive for development during the next several days, with a 30% chance of cyclone formation.

Based on a recent analysis of information this first system will be in the vicinity of the Leeward Islands by late Friday. The early projections are for it to pass to the south of the federation.
