DMCA IS CLOSELY MONITORING TROPICAL DISTURBANCE AL95 WHICH NOW HAS A 60% CHANCE OF TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION IN 48 HOURS – RESIDENTS ARE ASKED TO ASSESS THEIR RISK NOW AND BE PREPARED.

Yellow Hill, Montserrat – August 10, 2020 – Showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave and broad area of low pressure located about 600 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands have changed little in organization since yesterday. Environmental conditions are expected to be somewhat conducive for development to occur, and a tropical depression could form during the next day or two while the disturbance moves generally westward to west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the tropical Atlantic. Conditions are forecast to become less conducive for development by the end of the week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…60 percent.* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…60 percent.

Yellow Hill, Montserrat – July 9, 2020 – Showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave located a few hundred miles south-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands continue to show signs of organization. However, recent satellite-derived wind data indicate that the circulation remains elongated.
Environmental conditions appear conducive enough to support additional development of this system, and a tropical depression could form during the next few days while it moves generally westward at 15 mph across the tropical Atlantic. Conditions are likely to become less conducive for development late this week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…40 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent.
