In the wake of Andrea, conditions have settled down in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. However, this area is favorable for tropical activity during June.
Strong westerly winds will prevent the development of any tropical system over the Gulf of Mexico and much of the Caribbean Sea this week.
According to Tropical Weather Expert Dan Kottlowski, "Disturbances moving westward across the region will sheared apart by this disruptive mid- and upper-level winds for the time being."
As a disturbance moves westward into the western Caribbean or perhaps the southwestern Gulf of Mexico, there may a window of opportunity for a tropical system to develop later in June (next week).
The strong upper-level winds in the region would have to diminish.
There were storms along the flight path, AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Dave Samuhel said.
Strong winds and rough seas hampered evacuation efforts as hundreds remain stranded aboard the Norman Atlantic ferry in the Adriatic Sea.

A storm and cold air forecast to develop at the end of 2014 and linger into the start of 2015 will deliver snow, rain and a frost or freeze to portions of California.
Rain, snow, and unseasonably cold conditions will impact much of the West through the upcoming week with the threat of slippery travel in parts of the Southwest by midweek.
As the year comes to a close and people prepare to celebrate the start of 2015, many will be bundling up as cold weather stretches from coast to coast.
