No Atlantic Development Through the Weekend

7/11/2014 3:30:00 AM

No organized tropical systems are currently found in the Atlantic Basin, and development is not expected to occur through the weekend.

There are a couple of tropical waves to watch as they cross the basin over the next few days; however, none of them are in favorable environments to become organized systems.

Two waves are moving westward across the Caribbean Sea, the first is located near 15N73W with another to the east around 13N63W. Both of these waves are moving into a hostile environment with strong upper-level winds tearing apart any thunderstorms that form.

Another wave that emerged from Africa yesterday is near 15N30W; however, this wave is also moving into an area which is unfavorable for development. A large swath of Saharan dust is over the central and eastern Atlantic, and this will help to keep any organized development of this wave from occurring.
