Far Out East in June
10:59 AM EDT - 23 June 2000

There is an interesting wave out in the eastern Atlantic that could become a depression. This is very unusal for this time of year, so it may falter before that happens, but it has a chance.

There has never been a storm to form that far out in June in recorded weather history (since 1888 or so). So that puts the odds against anything forming. Yet it remains highly interesting. Any comments on this?

African June Bug?

Elsewhere, in the Southwest Caribbean there are some storms that could have formed, but they will move over land in Central America way before they get the chance.

We've added and corrected some links to our links page. Including a new international section for foreign language guests of Florida. We only have a very few (3) and are asking for any links to foreign hurricane information sites to add to the list.

I would go to ECTWC and read Mike's latest post from just a few minutes ago...this may be a real doozy.

Mike Anderson has a good point with the African systems. I'm personally unsure how much this may mean on the future of the season, but I wouldn't expect any immediate development from any of those systems this time of year.

Later on in the season, however, I think you could be right.

Cape Verde Season (#3)

I believe that the present activity along the ITCZ is a precurser of an active Cape Verde season. However, just because we have unusually high activity off the African coast in June, does not necessarily mean that it will continue. I agree with Dr. Gray's prediction of 12 named storms. I think we will have a slightly above normal season, but not an overwhelmingly above normal season. The Cape Verde season should be active, however. The orientation of the Bermuda High will cause problems for the southeast U.S.
