Atlantic Staying Quiet

7/4/2015 8:20:44 AM

AccuWeather meteorologists are tracking several tropical waves crossing the Atlantic Basin, but none are showing signs of organization. One tropical wave is crossing Central America, bringing enhanced shower and thunderstorm activity across portions of southeast Mexico.

Another wave is moving across the eastern Caribbean Sea, but it is weak and is moving too quickly to develop.

A third wave is about halfway between the Lesser Antilles and Africa and it should increase showers across the Windward Islands early next week.

Trade winds will remain strong across the Tropical Atlantic and Caribbean into next week. Saharan dust will continue to come off the African coast and across much of the basin, further deterring tropical development. Conditions are expected to remain quiet through much of next week.
