The Atlantic Basin is nice and quiet in terms of any potential areas of development over the next few days. Mid to late July is typically a hostile period in the deep tropics as high pressure, Saharan Air and generally unfavorable conditions prevail. This year has been no exception and one could argue that despite its short life, the formation of TS Don during this period this season is a sign that conditions are more favorable than normal.
For the time being, the Pacific will be quite active with several tropical storms, hurricanes and a typhoon or two but nothing too serious or intense and no major impacts to land are seen with any of the systems across the Pacific.
I have prepared a video discussion highlighting the state of things now and what may lie ahead as we end July and head in to the traditional ramping up that begins in August.
