Looking east for our next storm

As Tropical Depression Four continues to disorganize today, our attention starts focusing on the east side of the basin to see what may be next.  Over the past couple days, computer models have been sniffing out the next potential candidate with that being a wave that will be moving off Africa tomorrow.  With such a long track ahead, there’s nothing set in stone, but all reliable data show this area of disturbed weather to be approaching the Caribbean in roughly a week.  After that, it’s anyone’s guess.  Just know the “MDR”, otherwise known as the “Main Development Region” looks to be very active this season so we may have a number of  these long trackers to watch over the next few months.

Regardless, this wave that’s about to move off Africa looks poised to be our next “Invest” area some time over the coming days, and if so, it will be labeled 95L.  The next name on the list will be “Don”.

Locally, hot and muggy conditions will continue, but there will also be a chance at a few strong to severe thunderstorms through the weekend.  The primary threats will be gusty winds and dangerous lightning.
