Tropical Wave Could Develop in Gulf of Mexico Next Week

The tropical wave near the Lesser Antilles we discussed in our previous update is located near Hispaniola this evening. Satellite images show that it is producing a large area of disorganized  convection, but strong upper level winds are still hindering development. A west to west-northwest track is still expected, and… Continue reading

Another Trough Next Week; Cooler Than Average Temperatures Likely

Another unusually strong upper-level trough (for this time of year) is going to carve itself out over the Central and East U.S. mid to late week next week — something that has been common place this summer (see figure 1). The result of this trough digging in is going to… Continue reading

Tropical Update | Watching 99-L; Ernesto to Become Extratropical Soon

We continue to monitor Invest 99-L, tracking west to west-northwest over the Tropical Atlantic, and Tropical Storm Ernesto in the North-Central Atlantic. Invest 99-L: Overall, 99-L continues to be disorganized. Convective (shower/thunderstorm) activity has become less robust since yesterday. There also is still only weak vorticity associated with 99-L, and there… Continue reading

Invest 99-L Tagged in East Atlantic

A tropical wave in located in the East Atlantic has been tagged invest 99-L. Satellite images show that  invest 99-L currently has a decent amount of convective (shower/thunderstorm) activity. Though, the latest 850 millibar (mb) vorticity chart (see figure 2) indicates that 99-L  has only some weak vorticity (cyclonic turning/spin),… Continue reading

Tropical Update | Subtropical Depression Five Forms; Expected to Become Ernesto

Subtropical Depression Five has formed over the North-Central Atlantic Ocean from a non-tropical area of low pressure, in a very similar location as Debby just last weel. Genesis was also very similar to Debby’s genesis. Track: Subtropical Depression Five is currently tracking north at 5 mph. However, the depression will begin… Continue reading

Tropical Update | Disturbance in East Atlantic has Potential to Develop
