Gulf Threat Next Week?

I’m posting at midday since I’m playing in the Ronald McDonald golf tourney this PM and won’t get home till late.   I know many of you have trips planned for the Florida Beaches, Disneyworld or a cruise to Cancun/Cozumel during the next 8-10 days.  Although there is nothing to track RIGHT NOW, all indications point to a late season storm/hurricane developing in the western Caribbean and moving to the north early next week.  This is just to alert those folks traveling to pay attention to the tropical weather as the MJO is going into the favorable (rising air) phase and that will likely promote a late season burst of activity.   Way too soon to say if it will ever be our problem, but the historical tracks favor a system going to our east.   Satellite loops are showing a cluster of storms in the south central Caribbean and we’ll have lots of time to watch it evolve.    If it does and stays to our east, it could result in dragging some of the very chilly air over the north down to us around Oct. 10th.   It’s just pay attention time.  Another update late tonight.  Stay tuned!
