    to me the link of Matilda shows up in sufficient necessary colors.
    and it show conditions right at the different locations.
    cavok's link on the Onamet Page only shows the satelite Loops from NOAA,
    they are good for general all around observations of changes,
    but they are zero indicating any local conditions at specific areas,
    like when you want to know about rain or Temps or wave activity at specific locations like
    Punta Cana, Puerto Plata, Samana etc etc.
    the moving shades on those loops do not mean there are clouds at specific locations,
    and shown clouds do not mean it rains/shines or whatsoever.

    Loads of colour for me. You can click on what you want to see - wind, waves, temp, rain and all changes colour. The slider at the bottom gives you the date and time you want, you can zoom in on any town/place you want to, change centigrade to fahrenheit whatever.

    so that early Invest on the far Eastern Highway get's the doors open on a Free-Lane.
    running below the 10"N makes it difficult for areas of disturbed weather to get the right Swing as a Tropical Power,
    but in this case the position far South, barely above the 5"N margin, is what safed it from a early quick bye-bye.
    No Swing, but down there it stays well away from the dry Saharn Air Layer and wanders a nice Wet pavement,
    which should allow that the system continues to organize during teh next days.
    also the Windshear, over all Hostile almost everywhere, is very low/favorable down there on the Southern Lane.
    by the end of the weekend this could be a Tropical Power with a good swing once coming close to the 10"N,
    fueled by actually unlimited high Octane Fuels/Moisture.
    we will see how it develops the next days, see if it gets a chance to become a Storm
    and how the actually very Hostile Windshear and moisture atmosphere over the Caribbean Sea shift/develop.
    big Development from something wandering that far South is rare, but not impossible once climbing Northwards.

    if that disturbance out there would wander the highway just a hundred miles further north under the same surrounding conditions, I guess we would then see a so called Cape Verde Cyclone mid June this year.
    but the far south position hinders a strong swing.
    it wanders exactly on the open Lane(low windshear), a small path on the southern Highway.
    now 1800 miles off the Windward Islands, it has around 1000 more miles under favorable windshear and in a moisture environment, passing south of the heavier areas of dry Saharan Airmasses.
    the atmosphere will stay wet and the dry air should not be a problem when closing in towards the southernmost Windward Islands, but the windshear looks top ont the scale of Hostile against a Storm then there.
    it will be interesting to observe how good it can get organized before that point of the Enemy's attack.
    til now there are no indicators that it would shift more northwards, which would make it strong.
    Monday Noon it should be at it's top point of powers and the windshear attack begin,
    but that time scale can of course change a lot, depending on it's over all forward speed, which could slow down a lot.

    no dangers out there for our hometurf.

    so you are a Sado-Maso??
    high humidity with highest heat?
    I love it warm with low winds and without the high humidity like we have it early Spring and then again late summer and Fall.
    the full summer heat togeter with its high humidity,sweating even when sitting in the shade, Mom Nature could cut that out of the year's cycle and i would be perfectly fine with our tropical island climate.

    "high humidity with highest heat?"

    That's what the beaches are for.

    TD2 came out of the Disturbance which wandered the far southern Lane of the Highway.
    it is not a well running power machine, too far south for a full Swing,
    but it is still running under favorable surroundings with low windshear, moistured atmosphere and high sea surface temps.
    it is steaming on very fast/over 20mphr Westward towards the NE Shores of the Southamerican Continent/Southern Windward Islands.
    an other 24 hrs and it will be under hostile windshear.
    at the moment i don't think it will survive a Entry into the SE'ern Caribbean Sea due that high Windshear.
    nothing else to watch out there, so we kep an eye on the strange southern lane walker.

    let's find out how much TD2 will struggle or not.
    it is now starting to touch hostile grounds in case of windshear,
    due that i would say it had it's peak time already this morning and should not grow further powers.
    but all other conditions go more favorable for a Storm from now on,
    the Sea Surface rising on the Path, the Atmosphere perfectly moistured, far away from the Shield of Saharan dry Air.
    my best guess is that it will not manage to grow powers, max a weak TS and more likely just a TD.
    as such wandering from the SE in the Caribbean Sea tracking W-WNW.
    as a moisture fueled TD tacking the middle Lane of the Caribbean Sea steaming from E to West.
    Betya this Wednesday we will encounter Xtreme Levels of HIgh Sea's out there.
    the High Sea Dangers will have their most/full effects on the Eastshores from the Cape Southwards along Juanillo
    and then all along our Southshores from Rafael de Yuma to Barahona.
    ty up the Botas nicely and do not plan on any Boat Activities fo this Wednesday,
    the Authotities sure will close anywatersports, at least they should.
    Waves rolling along our shores will range somewhere 10-15ft with 20'ers as the Tops.
    Wind should not be anything bad, around 15knots, Gust Tops could be 20Knots at some spots.
    it will all pass very quick on wednesday, that TD2 is steaming on high speed, a F1 runner of stormy systems.
    it's high forward speed is one of the reasons why it did not grow stronger.
    so, under the line:
    if you have boats or run water activities or live right on the Beach on the Southern Tip of the East or along the Southshores,
    then Plan on a single Day Off this Wenesday, Ty up the boats tied and monitor the Wave Reports, as the High Sea's are the danger point of such System, not any wind powers or such.
    Thursday we will all be back out fishing, IF the Authorities are smart enough to realize that it is long over an the Alerts should be lifted again, lol.

    the Hunters are fying their inestigation of TD2 now.
    it is likely that it will be declared a TS, but nothing of concern.
    it did not gain further powers since last night nor did the central pressure drop in the area.
    a southern caribbean Sea wanderer which will bring strong waes to our shores, mainly the southshores, on Wednesday.
