Hot and little rain
By Yanet Diaz
HAVANA TIMES – An easterly wave is west of Cape Verde over the central tropical Atlantic, and is generating areas of showers and rains. However, it has a very low probability of developing into a tropical cyclone due to unfavorable conditions in the upper atmosphere.
In the rest of the area adjacent to Cuba, a predominance of high ocean pressures is expected, with a marked flow from the northeast and little chance of rain.
Warm and mostly sunny days will continue. Although there will be an increase in cloudiness in the afternoons, significant rains are not expected. The winds will be from the east and northeast, with speeds below 30 km/h. The humidity will be slightly lower compared to previous weeks, reaching close to 90% at dawn. The high temperatures will range between 31 and 33°C (88 and 91 F), while the lows will remain at 23 and 24°C (73 and 75 F). The sea surface temperature will be 29°C (84 F).
Over the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, the probability of tropical cyclone formation will be low for the next 5 days.
