Is the 2015 Cape Verde season dead to the US?
      #95928 - Thu Sep 10 2015 03:21 AM

Generally speaking, the Atlantic Cape Verde systems are diverted into "fish spiner's" by late September / early October due to North American frontal activity. Since there are no iminate systems coming off of West Africa, are we likely at the end of the the (albeit short) Cape Verde threat?

I realize that "home grown" systems are still an issue and might affect CONUS.

I think the cape verde season will last a bit longer this year, but that's countered by the fact that everything heading west will likely get shredded before it has the chance to recurve. This year is just not kind to tropical development in general.

There are signs 2016 may be vastly different, however.
