Looks like there's a bit of a flare up going on several hundred miles east of the Bahamas. Maybe we should watch there for today.
I was just looking through some archives through sheer boredom, and I couldn't help but notice that July 28th is normally a quiet day in the Atlantic basin. Out of the last 55 years, only 13 have had a tropical system on this date.

There, that took up some time. Looks like the dry streak in the tropics will continue.

And finally - Old Sailor, have a great birthday on Sunday!
