My wife and daughter are planning a 10 day cruise in the Caribbean starting Sunday August 27th... I can't help but wonder how bright the decision was for them to be going during the heart of hurricane season.
A BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE ASSOCIATED WITH A TROPICAL WAVE IS
LOCATED OVER THE CENTRAL ATLANTIC ABOUT 1100 MILES EAST OF THE
WINDWARD ISLANDS. ASSOCIATED SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY HASBEEN SLOWLY INCREASING DURING THE PAST 24 HOURS...AND CONDITIONS APPEAR SOMEWHAT FAVORABLE FOR GRADUAL DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT MOVES WESTWARD AT 15 TO 20MPH.
