Nothing going on.
09:30 AM EDT - 23 June 2001

Only have one slight bit of action going on nearing the Caribbean, but like most systems this time of year it isn't all that likley do that much. It is worth noting hower because of some of the characteristics that it is showing. The system close to 50W, will be the only thing going on for the next few days.

On my scale for development potential:

(forget it) 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (sure thing)

We had some network connection problems earlier in the week that have now been resolved, the site should be much faster than it has been.

The wave (#1)

The wave east of the Caribbean at about 10 north is looking a bit more organizid on satalite this morning. There even appears that there may be a weak circulation associated with the northern convection. All in all, I'll give it a 10-20% chance of becoming a depression, but once it reaches the Caribbean, it appears shear is high.

Latest sat image/loop I have (16:15) shows a pretty concentric system taking shape, with some outflow exhaust. I'd change that 2 to a 6 or 7. Let's see what the next 12 hours show. Cheers!!

I agree Steve...I just looked at the IR and WV loops; it's definitely looking healthier at this time. The Visible loops are not as informative (that's not really the word I'm looking for, but you know what I mean) as the other two. The convection is increasing and there is some outflow. I wouldn't write this one off just yet.

i didnt really expect that wave to still be there by now, but it is. doesnt look better than it did 12h ago, but it has another 36-48hrs before it runs into the hurricane graveyard in the SE caribbean. a closed low developing on this wave would probably mean depression status, so it has an ok chance. another 24hrs of steady convection would probably trigger that... so it might beat the law of averages. anyhow, id keep an eyeball on the bermuda triangle area into next week too, as the upper low in the eastern u.s. retrogrades and the bermuda high backs up to the north.

Wave seems to be losing it's convection now, so we'll await and see if it folds or maintains/refires. Needs to be a few degrees further north, but we'll see. The convection off the east coast down through the Caicos looks interesting. Something may get churning in the next few days. Cheers!!

so much for persistence. as of midnight nothing looks potent. theres an eastpac system fixing to fire, though. cosme if it gets together.

dont look like it is going to do anything at this timeits just a tickler for now

Wave still alive in the eastern Caribbean, and is looking formidable again. With high pressure expected to build in the western atantic during the week, things could get interesting. I still think development of this area is quite possible. Cheers!!

It's not to organizid but like Steve said when the high builds into the western atlantic over the next couple of day's things may become intresting. If any thing they'll boost are rain chances up here in Central and Southern Florida my late week.

shear (#11)

either theres a lot more convection getting torn up to make it apparent, or there wasnt as much shear in the basin a few days ago. quite nasty almost everywhere. until this cools off some nothing has a chance. looks like the TUTT is settling in, with shear across the caribbean and the upper low east of bermuda. everything at low latitudes is fairly well screwed. if anything goes in the near future it'll be the mid-latitude conversion type storm.

Shear (#12)

Right on Hank, the shear is definitely tearing the crap out of these waves. Good call Mike C. on the disturbance, it did not develop as I thought. I jumped the gun. Here's where I qualify it though. As Hank said a mid-level conversion storm would be the only way, and this may still happen as there seems to be a mid-level circulation from the wave racing to the west SE of Jamaica, and the northern branch of the wave that passed the Turks earlier. As high pressure builds (and I think it will by tomorrow)in the western Atlantic. The shear bear should settle down and at least give these waves the opportunity to develop. Early pix show convection both NE and SW of Cuba. Again its a waiting game, and timing is everything, as this wave may be way gone before conditions become favorable again. There are other interesting waves in the Atlantic as well, but too far out to even discuss at this point. We'll see if the ridge develops across the Carolinas out into the Atlantic first. If this doesn't occur, the discussion moot, as it may be anyhow. Cheers!!
