Tropical Atlantic update

Yes, tropical storms Gabrielle and Humberto are out there, and not much changed except that the NHC issued a special advisory within the past hour because they found Gabrielle a little stronger than they expected.

Overall, however, things right now with both cyclones stand pretty much as they did this morning when I updated their separate posts (see sidebar on right). Bermuda is the only land threatened by tropical weather in the Atlantic today.

Jeff Masters thinks that Humberto will be upgraded to hurricane later today. In that post he also looks at reasons why the Atlantic hurricane season has been so quiet, and why we all may get a break for the rest of September. Hope he’s right!

There may be another tropical depression forming this weekend in the Southwest Gulf of Mexico/Bay of Campeche, per the GFS. Dr. Masters mentions it, too.

At 108 hours, Gabrielle and Humberto still around, and a new tropical depression at Mexico's Gulf Coast and oil platforms, per current GFS graphic.
