Warning of extreme climate prospects for the Caribbean

Bridgetown, June 30 (Prensa Latina) The Caribbean Climate Outlook Forum (CariCOF), based in this capital, today predicted a complex pattern for the region from July to September with an impact on several nations.

CariCOF’s analysis indicates that 2024 will be a year marked by significant climate extremes, which will cause storms and downpours to become more unpredictable and high temperatures are expected to persist, especially in the Lesser Antilles.

Regarding the La Niña phenomenon in the tropical North Atlantic, the agency highlighted a progressive cooling trend while unusually warm temperatures in the tropical North Atlantic are likely to continue during the next three months.

Additionally, the forum has identified severe or worse short-term drought conditions in regions such as Belize, northern Guyana and the Virgin Islands starting July 1 and very prolonged in western Cuba, French Guiana, eastern areas from Guadeloupe, northern Guyana and Suriname until the end of November.

According to the latest Caribbean Climate Outlook newsletter, the peak of the 2024 Atlantic hurricane season, coupled with the Caribbean rainy and hot season, could lead to frequent and intense periods of oppressive humidity and heat, a warning scenario for all weather services in the area.
