Wave Watch

A tropical wave near 12.5N 53W at 05/21Z is showing some signs of better organization as it moves westward toward the Caribbean Lesser Antilles.

Well...not quite. If you look at the bottom of the satellite picture you will see an 'imagery date' of April 9th. Here is a good link to the current satellite image:

Re: Wave Watch

Other than a generalized lowering of pressures in the west and SW Carribean over the next 10 days neither of the two most relied upon models develop anything in the basin over the next ten days.
I have read some speculation from a Met that the wave now entering the Carribean could (possible) be the impetus for development in the far western portion in the next few days... but I think he is an outlier...

Re: Wave Watch

Updated speculation from many sources points to quiet period ending in next 7-10 days. A nice wave is exiting Africa now which should help moisten the atmosphere a bit and then there are things called CCKW's conectively-connected Kelvin Waves (what ever that is?) which apparently assisted the recent formation of the two most recent EPAC storms, and the MJO rotating toward the WATL... near the end of that period...
We'll have to wait and see
