Tropical Atlantic Update

There is Tropical Storm Karen, of course (see detailed entry at sidebar link).

The GFS model does still show Karen or its remnants moving over the southeast after landfall and then causing a problem along the East Coast at least up to Virginia, where it stalls out.

However, keep in mind that this is just one of many computer models, and as explained in today’s NHC 11 a.m. forecast discussion, much of Karen’s future course depends on how strong or weak it becomes over the next day or two.

Meteorology is very complicated. Add to that the fact that no computer model is very reliable over the longer term, and you can see why it’s best to take this on a day-by-day basis only. Your local meteorologists are watching this very closely and will keep you updated.

Yep, that's Karen or what's left of it off the East Coast, but it's only a computer guess at the situation five days from now - don't take it as gospel.  Note the new system in the southern Atlantic, though.  (Source)

Future Atlantic Storm Soon?

Things may be picking up in the Atlantic, finally. This run of the GFS also shows new storm developing off the coast of Africa early next week. If that verifies, it might possibly be a threat to the Caribbean next week.

We’ll see!
