Tropics getting Active

Just a quick update this morning.  Daylight (Visible) satellite loop shows a blossoming mass of storms over the extreme NE Gulf NW of Tampa.  It’s hard to tell if there is a surface low trying to form, but all the buoys have steady of rising pressures.  My guts tells me this disturbance will sit there for several days slowly getting better organized.  We have no need to worry yet as it still appears we will be on the “dry side” so our rain chances this weekend will be lower resulting in hotter (mid-upper 90s) temperatures.  Again, if you have trips planned to go east next week, you need to keep up on this weather system.


2 days ago I talked about a 2nd wave moving westward toward the Leeward Islands.  This morning NHC started talking about it giving it a 20% chance to develop.  However, it appears this system show turn to the north and avoid the U.S.     It’s the time of the year we all dread.   Get ready for the peak of hurricane season for the next 7-8 weeks.   Stay Tuned!
