okay okay, the fury of 91L bears down on south florida. utterly terrifying. true it might close off something nhc can name it by before it crosses the state in the morning hours, and true it will may pose a significant threat to the western gulf over the weekend. but, thats been talked up and spun to death, let's look elsewhere.
bay of campeche: somebody already observed this, but it's got convergence and some wave-triggered convective activity going at the moment. not much room to work with, would be much more interesting if it weren't so close to land.
25/45: another piece of energy broke away and tailed back as that central atlantic trough receded, tailing back like the piece that has given us 91L. it's drifting wsw, swirling some, generating an odd puff of convection. worth watching since it's of the same ilk as our current source of interest.
new wave still over africa: if anybody read my follow up to ed's forum piece last night, i was yakkin' about how much convection is over saharan africa right now. the monsoon down there is really going, and it's pattern-related to the intense heat in europe. a wave/low is going to come off tomorrow around 15N, and it looks quite impressive over land (token value noted). since mjo is probably becoming friendly and we're in the active part of the season it may well provide us something new to watch in the days ahead.
well, hope that was a nice change of pace from the hoopla over the imminent destruction of south florida by a tropical wave.
a'ite, better shut up or advisories will have been out for fifteen minutes by the time i post this..
