November Waves and Lows

Posted: 02:59 PM 10 November 2018 | | Add Comment

12PM ET Update 16 November 2018
96L has been greenballed (reactivated for tracking), and is rapidly organizing into a well-defined area of low pressure today, centered at roughly 24N 74.5W as of 1500z. If current trends continue NHC would likely issue an update by the regularly scheduled 7PM TWO.

Additional tracking info and speculation on 96L is also available in the 96L Lounge.

Original Entry

A couple of unseasonably impressive waves in the Tropical Atlantic have the potential for some development next week, with steering currents that could push one or more near or over portions of the Greater Antilles, Bahamas and/or Bermuda.

The most impressive wave is presently located about 700 miles east of the Lesser Antilles, and has caught the attention of NHC as well as several of the better models for development - now at 40% within 5 days per NHC

Another feature, a trough centered about halfway between the above referenced wave and the Lesser Antilles, is not presently flagged by NHC for potential, but could be. Although models analyze conditions as less ideal for TC genesis than for the wave to its east, it is looking very impressive, suggesting that this disturbance is more vigorous and/or the environment is more conducive than models think.

Both of these features are likely to produce moderate to heavy showers and strong, gusty winds over populated portions of the SW Atlantic regardless of development.

This post will be updated with any Invest tags and TC numbers as warranted.

Hurricane Leslie making a final run of it today - all the way to Portugal- while beginning to undergo merger with a front and extra-tropical transition. Leslie, it's been real. And a really long time reading your advisories..

Reports from some of those who were there in Panama City. Including those who have went to multiple large hurricanes. The most violent system they have been in, and the whole city looks like a nuke was dropped on it and the damage is very widespread. Particularly in Panama City Proper and points east. Some of the cell networks are not operating or are extremely spotty.
