"Darby" Moving Toward Hawaii

The sprawling Bermuda high continues to steer tropical waves / ITCZ (Intertropical Convergence Zone) well to the south.   We are starting to see more of a "wave train" coming off Africa which is the climatological norm.  Development, however, is not imminent. An upper level trough will move into the ...

"Frank" Forms South of Mexico

The sprawling Bermuda high continues to steer tropical waves / ITCZ (Intertropical Convergence Zone) well to the south.   We are starting to see more of a "wave train" coming off Africa which is the climatological norm.  Development, however, is not imminent. An upper level trough will move into the ...

Still a Very Quiet Atlantic Basin

The sprawling Bermuda high continues to steer tropical waves / ITCZ (Intertropical Convergence Zone) way south. Any tropical waves emerging off Africa almost immediately drop to the southwest before turning more westward at a low latitude initially at about 5 degrees N before gaining some latitude -- about 10 degrees ...

Active Pacific Basin vs. Quiet Atlantic

The sprawling Bermuda high continues to steer tropical waves / ITCZ (Intertropical Convergence Zone) well to the south. Any tropical waves emerging off Africa almost immediately drop to the southwest before turning more westward at a low latitude initially at about 5 degrees N before gaining some latitude -- about ...

Bermuda High Strengthens Again

A mammoth Bermuda high has reasserted itself maintaining the stream of tropical waves / ITCZ (Intertropical Convergence Zone) well to the south. Any tropical waves emerging off Africa almost immediately drop to the southwest before turning more westward at a low latitude initially at about 5 degrees N before gaining ...

Tropical Wave Over the Central Atlantic

The second & third images below show very dry mid & upper level air - a generally hostile environment for tropical development to say the least.  Meanwhile.... the Bermuda high is restrengthening pushing an already far to the south stream of tropical waves / ITCZ (Intertropical Convergence Zone) even farther ...

East Pacific Basin Remains Active

The second & third images below show very dry mid & upper level air - a generally hostile environment for tropical development to say the least.  Meanwhile.... the Bermuda high - after relaxing slightly the past several days - is restrengthening pushing an already far to the south stream of ...

"Estelle" Develops over E. Pacific

The second & third images below show very dry mid & upper level air - a hostile environment for tropical development to say the least.  Dust will be quite literally deposited on some of the Caribbean Islands & over extreme Northern S. America through the weekend. Meanwhile.... the Bermuda high ...

Atlantic Basin Quiet & Dusty

Different day, same song: Saharan dust continues to push west across the Atlantic.  The second & third images below show the very dry mid & upper level air - a hostile environment for tropical development to say the least.  Dust will be quite literally deposited on some of the Caribbean ...

Atlantic Basin Dominated by Huge Dust "Cloud"

Saharan dust continues to push west across the Atlantic.  The second & third images below show the very dry mid & upper level air - a hostile environment for tropical development to say the least.  Dust will be quite literally deposited on some of the Caribbean Islands & over extreme ...

"Darby" Develops Over E. Pacific

Saharan dust continues to push west across the Atlantic.  The second & third images below show the very dry mid & upper level air - a hostile environment for tropical development to say the least.  Dust will be quite literally deposited on some of the Caribbean Islands & over extreme ...

Saharan Dust Spreading West

Saharan dust continues to push west across the Atlantic.  The second & third images below show the very dry mid & upper level air - extremely hostile environment for tropical development to say the least.  Dust will be quite literally deposited on some of the Caribbean Islands & over extreme ...

Massive Saharan Dust Plume Over Atlantic

A tremendous plume of Saharan dust is pushing west across the Atlantic.  The second & third images below show the very dry mid & upper level air - extremely hostile environment for tropical development to say the least. Meanwhile.... the Bermuda high remains strong & has dropped a little south ...

Wave into the Caribbean

A tropical wave has entered the Caribbean but is being kept in check thanks to strong shear.  No organization is evident nor is expected.  The Bermuda high remains strong but displaced well to the east over the Atlantic but with a ridge that extends west/southwest to Florida (one of the ...

East Pacific Stays Active

Remarkably clear skies continue over most of the SW Atlantic, Caribbean & Gulf of Mexico with evidence of very dry air + Saharan dust over the Central Atlantic.  The Bermuda high remains strong but displaced well to the east over the Atlantic but with a ridge that extends west/southwest to ...

Rough Seas in the Caribbean

Remarkably clear skies over most of the SW Atlantic, Caribbean & Gulf of Mexico.  The Bermuda high remains strong but displaced well to the east over the Atlantic but with a ridge that extends west/southwest to Florida (one of the reasons for our current heat wave & dry spell). Strong ...

Major Typhoon Hitting Taiwan

Weak tropical waves continue to move westward at a low latitude across the Atlantic.  There is a good deal of dry air + shear so no development expected anytime soon.  The Bermuda high remains strong but displaced well to the east over the Atlantic. Strong trade winds & rough seas ...

Typhoon Takes Aim on Taiwan

Weak tropical waves continue to move westward at a relatively low latitude across the Atlantic.  There is a good deal of dry air + shear so no development expected anytime soon.  The Bermuda high remains strong but displaced well to the east over the Atlantic. Strong trade winds & rough ...

"Blas" Goes Hurricane Over E. Pacific

No Atlantic tropical threats this week... Weak tropical waves continue to move westward at a relatively low latitude across the Atlantic.  There is a good deal of dry air + shear so no development expected anytime soon.  The Bermuda high remains strong but displaced well to the east over the ...

Two Systems Over E. Pacific

No Atlantic tropical threats this week... Weak tropical waves continue to move westward at a relatively low latitude across the Atlantic.  There is a good deal of dry air + shear so no development expected anytime soon.  The MJO pulse (see Pacific at bottom) will be pushing eastward toward & ...
