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 (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 fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited, more than 10 years ago! Since then, I've spent a lot of time here getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website where I share my thoughts and love about Saint-Martin (French side) and Sint Maarten (Dutch side) with the world. I hope you enjoy it!
