Warning issued over gusty winds

| 02/12/2020 | 11 Comments

(CNS): The hurricane season might be over but weather officials in Cayman have issued a warning for strong, near gale-force winds across the Cayman Islands Wednesday and Thursday as a result of a tightening gradient behind a cold front in the northwest Caribbean. The National Weather Service said winds could reach 30 knots overnight, as it forecast strong northeasterly winds and rough seas. A marine warning is also in effect as a result of wave heights increasing up to nine feet. We can also expect cloudy skies with a 40% chance of showers and possible thunder.

      Another part of our heritage changed by the new arrivals, years ago growing up here in the 1950’s 60’s etc., we used to call this type of weather ‘Christmas Breeze” not ‘gusty winds’.

          Those were the good ole days! Remember having to pull out the sweaters. Growing up in East End I remember all the little birds that would come around sunset to feed on the swarms of fire flies and dragon flies.
