10 august, 2017 Tropical Report

The Gulf of Mexico seems clear of any tropical storms, and there is one tropical disturbance in the Atlantic.

That one is currently north of the Leewards and is expected to make a hard right and turn back toward Europe.

There is also a blue blob with no further information off the Florida coast, close to Cape Canaveral, that I assume is the remains of a disorganized system that appeared close inshore yesterday. So there are no current threats from the Atlantic or the Gulf.

Apparently, the astonishingly low sea surface temperatures are keeping things quieter than the late 1990’s to mid 2005 average.

But keep your fingers crossed. We have more than three months of hurricane season left, and storms can blow up in a hurry.
