One last fling with tropical weather possible

Storm watchers will keep an eye on activity in the southwestern Caribbean that could become the final tropical storm of 2016.

The broad low pressure system has potential to develop into what would become Tropical Storm Otto. However, an approaching cold front from the Gulf of Mexico may keep the system away from the Cayman Islands, according to the Director General of the National Weather Service, John Tibbetts.

“It would ensure that this area of cloudiness will move either west into Nicaragua or northeast toward Jamaica,” he said.

Mr. Tibbetts says any rain provided by the system will help address a significant shortfall in 2016. Through the end of October, the National Weather Service has measured 27.53 inches of rain, a 19.38-inch departure from the 47.36 inches of average precipitation received in the same period. Mr. Tibbetts said an additional 0.53 inches of rain has been recorded to-date in November.
