“Paulette” arrives in Azores as a tropical storm
Thanks to Jaime as usual for all thing nautical/weather: Apparently Madeira could be in for some bad weather on the back of another hurricane, Paulette, that has gone “rogue” in the Atlantic – similar to hurricane “Leslie” which caused much consternation last year.
Jaime observes that this is all a good way off and will therefore probably change, but based on yesterday’s forecasts from the National Hurricane Centre, Paulette will brush with Flores and Corvo in the Azores this Friday with storm-force winds.
He notes that the interesting thing is that the “remnants” of Paulette may hit Madeira the following Thursday 24th as shown by the ECMWF forecast ( attached ) so it could be very wet and windy as it passes. “All a long way off but worth keeping an eye on”.
