Haiti could see Hurricane BERTHA next week

HaitiAction.net - Port au Prince, Haiti — In the first real test — the 2014 Hurricane Season — of Haiti’s civil defense resources this year, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami is expecting the tropical system approaching the Windward Islands to develop into a tropical depression later today. The tropical weather system is moving W-NW at 15 knots and is located 1000 miles (EbS) of Barbados.

While the satellite image of the system is fairly impressive, a large part of that clarity is due to the large Saharan Air Layer covering most of the Tropical Atlantic to the North of the system, the NOAA forecasters expect that dry air to limit the formation of the cyclone. Just the same, other conditions look favorable for tropical cyclone formation which could change quickly once the weather system moves into the Caribbean.

The Haiti Hurricane Season hasn’t seen this kind of slow start since the Occupation started in 2004. Normally, the beginning of August will see a flurry of hurricanes developing. In this case another storm is developing west of the Cape Verde Islands in the Monsoon Trough stretched across the Atlantic. Haiti could see the threat of Hurricanes BERTHA and CRISTOBAL in the first two weeks of August.

HaitiAction.net will be following the progress of this storm and updating the Tropical Cyclone Page soon.
