Tropical Cyclone Six Tracking North, More Activity Expected Next Week

Tropical Cyclone Six appears to be tracking north of Saint Martin, with a path that should mean it misses landfall — at least the for the Leewards — by a big margin. Here’s a look at the latest map from the National Hurricane Center.

As much as none of us wants to think about the possibility of a hurricane even coming close to Saint Martin — or anywhere in the Caribbean for that matter — particularly after last year, it’s important to stay informed and diligent. So yes, I will continue to keep everyone posted on any tropical storms that develop just in case they do end up heading towards the Caribbean.

We can see below in the forecast from Windy.com (about the coolest weather website I’ve ever seen) that it does indeed appear that, by next Sunday, Tropical Storm Six will not be anywhere close to the Caribbean. You’ll also notice that it looks like there’s another storm that will be developing off the west coast of Africa — just west of the Cape Verde islands — that we’ll need to keep an eye on. And what appears to be a smaller storm just to the east of the Leewards.

Forecast for Sunday, September 9, 2018

For now, a big sigh of relief that Tropical Storm Six is heading north and hopefully this track will continue to be the trend as more tropical storms develop. We’ll keep you posted.

I am a U.S. citizen living in Phoenix, Arizona, with my wife and two sons, ages 4 and 6 (and yes, they LOVE SXM as much as we do!). My family considers the island a second home and we’ve been there countless times. We love the culture, the people, the community and the beauty of this island. The people have always made us feel at home and welcome. This is a small way for me and my family to support an island and it’s people that we hold so dear.
