Expert: Weather will change
REGIONAL WEATHER EXPERTS are anticipating a “normal” Atlantic hurricane season.
This has been stated by Kathy-Ann Caesar, chief meteorologist at the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology, who noted that the past two years had brought “quiet seasons”.
However, she said yesterday that there was the possibility of an uptake in activity towards the end of the year in the transition from El Nino to La Nina conditions.
Caesar said she expected that there would be an increase in the number of tropical waves and because of the prevailing drought that had left the ground dry, there was the possibility of flooding when the rains do come because of the inability of the water to quickly penetrate the earth in the Eastern Caribbean.
The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June to November. (ES)
