Tropical activity in the central Caribbean

9:21 a.m. ET ET Fri.,Oct.1,2004


Tim Ballisty, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



There is only one named system in the Atlantic, and that is Tropical Storm Lisa. Lisa is heading northward and will soon push to the northeast as it gets picked up by an upper-level low. Before encountering an unfavorable environment full of upper-level shear and colder sea surface temperatures, Lisa may still have a brief window of opportunity to strengthen to a minimal hurricane. If it does it will be the eighth hurricane this year in the Atlantic Basin.


Meanwhile, a tropical wave in conjunction with an upper-level disturbance is heading from the central Caribbean into the northwestern Caribbean. Some development is possible over the next few days as a favorable upper-level environment is forecast to build over the disturbance. In the short term, this tropical activity will likely spell out a very wet day for Jamaica and the Cayman Islands today and into Saturday morning.
