Stormy Weather Along the East Coast; Extended Warm-up for the West

A strong low pressure system will bring heavy rain, gusty winds, and thunderstorms along the east coast. Isolated severe thunderstorms could produce damaging winds and a few tornadoes in the Southeast. Heavy rains may result in excessive runoff and flash flooding. Building high pressure out west will produce above normal temperatures, especially, in the Pacific Northwest. Read More >

The Tsunami Exercise Caribe Wave 18 will have three scenarios: Barbados, Colombia and Puerto Rico. All scenarios will start, with one dummy message, at 1400 UTC (time of the earthquake) and the 1st message for each of the three scenarios will be 5 minutes later (1405 UTC).

It is important to remark that each Member State will selects one scenario and that PTWC only will send simulated products for the selected scenario to the primary TWFP and NTWC of that Member State.
