Cuban Institute of Meteorology calls to remain alert to weather shift


Cuban Institute of Meteorology calls to remain alert to weather shift

Havana, Aug 24 (Prensa Latina) The Forecast Center of the Cuban Institute of Meteorology called to remain alert and distrustful of the current calm weather in the middle of the cyclonic season, the local press reported.

“We cannot grow complacent nor lower our guard in the face of (the) tranquility, said the head of the institution, Miriam Teresita Llanes.

According to the consensus of national specialists, the frequent coverage of Saharan dust clouds over the tropical Atlantic is one of the causes of this behavior.

“This layer provides very hot air with minimum values of relative humidity, which literally dries up active tropical waves in terms of cloud cover and rain coming off the coast of Africa,” Llanes said.

“This factor itself increases the wind shear in the upper layers of the atmosphere, preventing tropical systems from concentrating energy for their emergence and development,” Llanes was quoted as saying by the press.

Some models begin to suggest that the environmental conditions unfavorable to cyclone development should begin to change late in August.
