The Calm Before the Storms?
01:53 PM EDT - 21 July 1999

Quite a Quiet Atlantic at the moment. There has been lots of activity but no development.

However within the next two weeks or so I believe the Atlantic will get going again, and we'll start the August season with a bang.

Short update, because there isn't anything to speak of at the moment.

This has been a slow start to a season that has been forecasted to be active, we have seen cooler sst move in toward the african coast, this has been the factor in kicking the leg's out from under the waves thus far, if this cooler water does not move out it will put a cap on the African systems leading the way to lesson the forecasted storms that DR GRAY has forecasted. I do believe that the systems comeing off the African coast will respond to the warming Atlantic, however not in time to see anything form this week,more like Aug, i am however thinking that DR GRAY'S active season will not be as active as forecasted, im thinking more like 8 storms , we will just have to see what the the Atlantic says.

you are right it is quiet, yet a active, it is like a tease, trying to catch us off guard, i a m a weather enthusiast, and my family is in the islands, i am in nyc but i am a weather watcher, hoping there will be action yet not bring harm to anyone.

I think this season is going to start very slow but finish with a bang, the season really dont get started till mid August anyway so we have time to see what's going to happen , till than it's a wait and see thing.
