Update on Tropical Storm Cindy

June 23, 2023

The Barbados Meteorological Services says at 5:00 p.m., the centre of Tropical Storm Cindy was located near 13.3N 49.3W, approximately 684 miles (1100km) to the east of Barbados.

Tropical Storm Cindy is presently moving towards the west-northwest (295 degrees) at 16mph (26km/h) with maximum sustained winds of 50mph (85km/h) and a minimum central pressure of 1003mb.

Sea surface temperature has been sufficiently warm under Tropical storm Cindy for favourable development. However, there has been decline in the previous structure of Tropical Storm Cindy over the past couple hours as some dry air has entered into its circulation.

The model consensus currently agrees that Tropical Storm Cindy will continue to track to the northeast of the island chain, before weakening early next week as it enters an environment of deep-layered shear.

There are no watches or warnings in effect for Barbados with respect to Tropical Storm Cindy. In addition, on this forecast track Cindy will not pose any threat to Barbados.

Due to the location within the Central Atlantic, the public should continue monitoring official sources.

The next update will be at 11:00 p.m.
