    Atlantic basin still quiet

    7/22/2017 6:00:00 AM

    The Atlantic basin remains very quiet and tropical development is not expected over the next several days. There are currently several waves moving across the Atlantic and through central America. These waves will continue on a westward trajectory and will move at 6-8 degrees longitude per day. There is another tropical wave that will emerge off the coast of west Africa overnight tonight.

    The reason these waves are having a hard time developing further is twofold. The first reason is the expansive area of dry and dusty air that encompasses most of the eastern Atlantic. There is also drier air across portions of the western Atlantic and through the Caribbean. This dry air is leading to reduced shower and thunderstorm activity with these waves.

    The second reason why we are not seeing development is the strong wind shear that is in place over much of the basin. Strong shear remains in place over the Caribbean and this is inhibiting any development in this part of the basin. The reason there is so much shear is because of an anomalously strong area of high pressure in the east-central and western Atlantic. Because of the adverse conditions, development is not expected for the next several days.
