DRY WEATHER HERE IS A BARRIER TO SYSTEMS TO THE SOUTHEAST OF US

Cold front in Bahamas is a wall blocking tropical wave near Puerto Rico.

High pressures over the southeastern U.S. have been our friend throughout most of the 2010 hurricane season. The coolest weather so far this fall will continue here as high pressure settles over us through this weekend. The trade winds on the southern edge of the Bermuda-Azores high pressure continue to drive tropical waves westward across the tropical Atlantic.

The wave with the lowest pressure is now passing over Puerto Rico. It is typical of tropical waves to produce heavy rains on their eastern side; consequently, heavy rains over the Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico will reach Hispaniola and the southeast Bahamas between now and Friday.

With a 60% chance of tropical cyclone development, the wave may produce a storm between now and this weekend. It may either swing to the north on the east side of the front, or be deflected to a more southerly over the Caribbean toward the Yucatan peninsula. We’ll keep you posted.
