July 09, 2019

SEVEN DAY FORECAST FOR THE BAHAMAS from 08th to 14th July 2019

General Situation: Troughing in the low levels across the NW Bahamas in combination with a mid to upper level low across the Central and SE Bahamas continues to trigger pockets of unsettled weather across most of the Northwest Islands. Surface to low level troughing near the NW Bahamas and across Florida on Tuesday will shift westward into the Northern Gulf of Mexico where it will likely form into a tropical cyclone system by Thursday, then shift inland somewhere along the western Gulf of Mexico coast. Meanwhile, an upper level low will move through the Central and SE Bahamas through Thursday and then it will shift across the NW Bahamas through Sunday with little associated unsettled weather at times. High pressure ridge will continue to produce an easterly to southeasterly wind flow as moderate to strong breezes remain over the area through Sunday.
