HAVANA TIMES – A slight deterioration in weather conditions over the weekend is expected, thereby increasing the chance of showers and thunderstorms. Predominate moderate trade winds, with speeds between 15 and 25 km/h, and slightly stronger in the afternoons.

Maximum temperatures will be between 32 and 34° C (90 and 93 F) and the lows ranging between 23 and 25° C (73 and 77 F). The sea surface temperature will be stable at 29° C (84 F).

Meteorological conditions:

Tropical Storm Gaston has intensified in the last few hours, west of Cape Verde and it continues to move northwest at about 30 km/h, having sustained winds of 70 mph and gusts up to 90 mph . Meanwhile, in the eastern Caribbean a tropical wave embedded in a low surface pressure and is causing convection over the whole arc of the Lesser Antilles. This system is likely to become a tropical cyclone during the next two days, as it continues moving west-northwest with convection, winds and rain associated with it, deteriorating weather conditions along its path.
