Depending on how you look at weather, I have sad news, and good news for some. Tropical Depression Seven is now classified as a Tropical Wave. Unless this Wave can regenerate it will not become Tropical Storm Gordon. Regeneration is not expected due to dry air being pulled in and modest wind shear in the area [as mentioned yesterday].
Currently this open wave is located about 40 Miles east of the Barbados at 13.3 North 58.9 West and still has winds of 35 MPH. Moving West at a fast clip of 25 MPH which doesn’t help with tropical formation, and has a central pressure of 1011 MB or 29.85 inches. This will be the last update on this system. I’ll continue to monitor this wave and should it come back to life I’ll let you know. Although no longer a threat, tropical storm winds may still be in and around the system and may be possible across the Windward Islands through tonight.
On a side note: Do you like to gaze at the stars ? If so, tonight would be a good night to do so. Providing skies are clear in your area, you may be able to see the Perseid Meteor Shower which will peak tonight showering the skies with 60 to 100 meteors an hour. The best time for viewing will be after midnight, but there is a possibility you could see some before this time; I have in the past.
