LISA NO threat to US, moving north


Recommended Posts

Lisa is the only Atlantic named storm

5:52 p.m. ET ET Sat.,Oct.2,2004

Lisa remains the "lone wolf" as far as named tropical cyclones are concerned in the Atlantic Basin this weekend. Lisa was downgraded to a tropical storm this afternoon, and is now caught up in the jet stream. Strong winds aloft are not a friend of tropical cyclones, so Lisa should weaken further as it is pulled well north of the Azores. Low pressure in the upper-levels of the atmosphere, not at the surface, will trigger numerous showers over parts of Central America, particularly Nicaragua and Honduras over the next few days. Localized flooding and mudslides are possible over Central America as this low creeps northwestward through early next week. Since this low is NOT at the surface, further development of this system into a tropical cyclone is not imminent. However, the western Caribbean is an area that can breed tropical cyclones in the month of October, and we will keep a watch on this. A tropical wave sliding westward through the Lesser Antilles will keep showers in the islands through at least Sunday
