Tropical Conditions Report

10:01AM Friday, July 01, 2022 (tbk)

 

Current Conditions:

 

LOCAL STORM/HURRICANE WATCHES/WARNINGS:  No
 
Tropical Storm Force or Greater Winds Within 48 Hours:  No
 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Recently upgraded Tropical Storm Bonnie with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph, located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea this morning, should make landfall early Saturday morning in southern Nicaragua or northern Costa Rica.  Bonnie is of no concern to the SFWMD.

A tropical wave located a few hundred miles east of the Windward Islands this morning is moving west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph.   Environmental conditions could support some slow development of this disturbance through the weekend until it moves into the eastern Caribbean Sea, after which time strong upper-level winds will make any further development unlikely. Regardless of this system’s development prospects which appear low, the northern end of the tropical wave could enhance rains across most of or the southern half of the SFWMD Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

NEXT SCHEDULED UPDATE:  8 am Saturday
