Atlantic Basin about to get quite busy

It was foreseen by people such as Dr. Michael Ventrice from WSI more than 9 days ago – the tropics were about to come to life. A strong wave of energy or convection was forecast to move out of the Pacific and in to the Atlantic, setting off the chance for development and now we are seeing that coming to pass.

The NHC is watching two areas for possible tropical storm formation over the coming days. One, invest area 99L, is off the coast of Africa while the other one is located in the Caribbean Sea. Both have potential for additional development but it is 99L that has the highest chance right now.

I take a look at these systems and a lot more in my latest video discussion which is posted below. I’ll have another in-depth discussion here tomorrow.
