Weather in Havana, August 2-8

Eduardo A. Diaz Fernandez

HAVANA TIMES — Over the upcoming seven-day period we will have weather typical for August. This will be influenced by subtropical anti-cyclonic air currents from the North Atlantic and by high temperatures. The days will cloudy in the mid-afternoons, producing showers or storms — most likely over the weekend — due to the influences of daytime heating and sea breezes.

A low pressure area, located in the southeastern portion of the Lesser Antilles, has a high probability of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours. Although the system remains far away, as it approaches the region we recommend following the forecasts issued by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the Instituto de Meteorologia de Cuba (INSMET).

No cyclonic systems are expected to develop in the next 48 hours for the immediate area.

High temperatures will range around 32°C (90°F) while the minimum ones will drop to around 24°C (75°F).

Winds will be weak and predominantly from the east-southeast.

The sea surface temperature will reach 29°C (84°F).
