CARIBBEAN – As of Thursday, 23 October, TD#9 has diminished into a low pressure system. All coastal watches and warnings have been lifted. The system is now over Mexico in the Campeche area. No tropical development is foreseen for the next five days.
ARCHIVED: TD#9 accoridng to the NHC on Wednesday evening 22 October, says the system could degenerate back into a low pressure system once it moves over land. This could happen tonight or on Thursday.
ARCHIVED: LP#1 became Tropical Depression #9 (TD#9) on Tuesday, october 21 and the NHC has a Hurricane Hunter aircraft in the system to whether TD#9 has become Tropical Storm Hanna. NHC has already issued early Wednesday morning a Tropical Storm Warning for Celestun to Frontera in Mexico. TD#9 was located at 7.00AM 120 miles west south west from Campeche Mexico.
ARCHIVED: Tuesday, October 21, 2014 - Low Pressure (LP#1) in the Gulf of Mexico over the south western Bay of Campeche has become better defined, but still shows some limited shower and thunderstorm activity early Tuesday morning as it moves slowly eastward. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) gives the system a 50 per cent chance for development in the coming days. A Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system on Tuesday afternoon. Interests in the Yucatan Peninsula have been advised to monitor the progress of the system.
Weather analyst forecast that LP#1 could become Tropical Storm Hanna sometime this week. A lot of uncertainty remains whether the system will track eastward into the Western Caribbean Sea – left handed storm system similar to Hurricane Lenny – or take a more north easterly track near the Florida peninsula.
Some of the global models project the system becoming an intense tropical storm in the north-western Caribbean.
The Atlantic hurricane season runs until the end of November. We have less than six weeks to go. Storms during this time of the year usually form in the Gulf of Mexico or Western Caribbean Sea and take a westerly track towards the Lesser Antilles. Residents of the Caribbean have to continue to remain vigilant for the remaining weeks of the season.
LP#2 is located several hundred miles south east of the Azores in the North Atlantic Ocean. The system is producing gale force winds. This system is slowly moving westward over open ocean. The NHC gives this system a low 10 per cent of development.
ARCHIVED: On Sunday evening, October 19th, there are two new disturbances, but they are no threat to the Caribbean region.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) gives the system a medium chance of development within the next five days. The system is moving east north eastward at five to 10 miles per hour.
The second LP is located in the far eastern Atlantic Ocean several hundred miles south east of the Azores. The system is producing gale force winds and the NHC has given it a medium chance of development within the next five days. The LP is moving slowly westward closer to warmer waters.
