LISA heading into colder Atlantic waters


Recommended Posts

A disturbance in the Caribbean, Hurricane Lisa

8:32 p.m. ET ET Fri.,Oct.1,2004

There is only one named system in the Atlantic, and that is Hurricane Lisa well into the north Atlantic. It became the 8th hurricane of the 2004 Atlantic Basin Hurricane Season late this afternoon. Hurricane Lisa is heading increasingly northeastward as it gets picked up by a shearing upper-level low and moves over colder sea surface temperatures.


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 more favorable upper-level environment is forecast to build over the disturbance. In the short term, this tropical activity will likely spell flooding rains for Jamaica and the Cayman Islands into Saturday.
