The "season" so far
      #94724 - Mon Aug 26 2013 09:07 PM

Six named storms, all tropical storms so far. The SAL and sheer have pretty much won to date. Will things heat up fast for September, or are we looking at the potential for an active late season in the Western Atlantic, Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico? What are comparative previous seasons?

This will become the first season in recent memory w/o a hurricane before the end of August. Next week, however, things begin to change for a few weeks with a more pos. MJO effect expected in the basin. What has interested me most is the series of upper level eddys that have hovered in and around the Florida Straits/GOM region. These features have influenced at least four of the storms so far this year and neutralized three of them. I do not recall this type of recurrent pattern occurring before, although I am sure it has.
