    Tropical Atlantic Takes a Time-Out

    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.
