DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
——————————
At 800 AM AST (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Harvey was located near latitude 13.0 North, longitude 60.3 West. Harvey is moving toward the west near 18 mph (30 km/h), and a continued westward motion with a slight increase in forward speed is expected over the next couple of days. On the forecast track, Harvey should
move through the Windward Islands and into the eastern Caribbean Sea this morning.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Some slight strengthening is possible during the next 48 hours.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) mainly to the north of the center.

The minimum central pressure estimated from Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft data is 1005 mb (29.68 inches). The Grantley Adams International Airport on Barbados recently reported a
pressure of 1006 mb (29.71 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are spreading through the warning area at this time, making outside preparations difficult or dangerous. Tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch area today.

    A natural disaster is all we need to close the deficits !!

    The season is not over yet so hold on to those incantations and stay ready – not just to look after yourself, but also to give shelter and food for several days to families that have been displaced !!
