Basseterre, Monday, 21st June 2021, (MyVue News.com)-For most of the Eastern Caribbean, it has so far been a relatively quiet start to the 2021 Hurricane Season.
However, the latest system to develop is now moving across the southeastern portion of the region.
The National Hurricane Center, (NHC), in Miami, in its report at 8:00 am on Monday, 21st June, revealed that the system is a well-defined tropical wave located about 900 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands.
It is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
Some development of this disturbance will be possible during the next couple of days before upper-level winds become less conducive for further organization by Thursday.
The system is expected to move westward to west-northwestward at around 15 mph.
There is a second system, but this is not located in the Eastern Caribbean and is of no present threat to the region.
The NHC has issued advisories on this recently upgraded Tropical Storm, Claudette, which is located inland over northeastern North Carolin, USA.
Claudette has maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.
