Pretty impressive development... really pulled together a lot today. Let's see if it sustains itself..


Looks a bit ragged today as is to be expected with systems coming off the African continent.

Closer to home, there is a surge in the low and mid-level easterlies which can be seen in the Atlantic visible loop:

It's also noted on the Saharan Air Layer analysis:

And analyzed as a trop wave:

It appears to have a fair amount of dust, too.
