Invest 97L, May Become “Matthew” Later This Week

Vincentians should continue to monitor a system which is making its way across the Atlantic Ocean.

According to the National Hurricane Centre (NHC), at 2 A.m. this morning  the system was located approximately 1 150 miles east south-east of the Windward Island.

NHC says, shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a large low-pressure area has increased and become a little better organised since yesterday.

Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for gradual development, and a tropical depression is likely to form later this week while the low moves westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph.

Interests in the Windward Islands, the southeastern and south-central Caribbean Sea, as well as the northern coast of South America, should monitor the progress of this system, the NHC says.

Although the St Vincent Meteorological Office has not issued any advisories for the island at this time, officials are predicting a change in the weather.
