Tropical Atlantic update

I’m on a roll today with catch-up posts, and wish there were something to share about upcoming tropical weather in the Atlantic.

There isn’t, per the GFS. The NHC experts have their eyes on a broad area of low pressure in the Gulf east of Brownsville, but conditions aren’t right for development and they give it a near zero percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone within the next five days.

More as (and if) it develops.

It’s incredibly slow for this time of year. And of the hurricanes we have had, Humberto and Ingrid tied as the strongest – a mere 85 mph wind.

It’s boring, but that can be good when it comes to tropical cyclones:
 


 
Yep, boring is a fine thing. We are very lucky, so far this season. Hope it holds out.
