Don't those waves look impressive near Africa. there now is a broad sluggish moisture on the wave that came off the African coastline not too long ago. I dnno but I have a feeling something big is going to happen in a week or so. I think this is the end of the so called quiet period of the season. I do see a hurricane in a week if things continue the way they are. The wave off the Africa coastline now looks really impressive. I think it's something to track this week.
