Oh Roger ... how could you !!
Oh well ... such is life in Barbados.
It may not be that good there later this week because there is a question mark over a new development off the African Coast that is now south of the Cape Verde Islands at a relatively low latitude ... I think there is a very small chance that this could affect the northern Leeward Islands if it does not develop too much.
If it develops then it is likely to spin further north and the US and Bermuda (possibly) will have an interest ... by the end of this weekend it will be close.
Elsewhere, Katia is a strong hurricane looking to curve between the US and Bermuda and back out into the northern Atlantic where she is expected to become a very large north Atlantic Storm ... Northern Europe and possibly the UK need to watch out for a possible weather event by Monday/Tuesday next week ... as if there hasn't been enough.
Meanwhile, back on the farm, I decided to take a break from all this during the peak of the Hurricane Season and go wallow peacefully in the Algarve sunshine ... how appropriate ?!? ... but there is a little known surfing beach there (Zavial) that provides some quite unbelievable rollers from these Atlantic Storms ...
Anyway ... I should have some internet access so watch out for sporadic reports from now until the 19th.
Have fun everybody
