Hurricane season keeps going after Irma

9:30 AM ET Wednesday, September 13

To state the obvious, the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season has lived up to the predictions of being quite busy. We have had several high impact events in the United States and combined with other systems such as Bret, Don and Franklin, the landfall issues have been extensive.

Remember, the hurricane season run through the end of November which is of course a date on the calendar – there have been plenty of years when we saw “out of season” storms and hurricanes – which of course happened this year already with Arlene in April.

So what’s happening out there now? For the moment, we have hurricane Jose to keep track of over the next several days. It is not completely clear yet what will happen with Jose as steering currents look to become confused as we move through the next five to seven days.

I also noticed that pressures are forecast to lower quite significantly in the Caribbean Sea over the next two weeks or so which usually means the season is shifting from deep tropical Atlantic develop to more in-close type development; a pattern that is common to see as the season wears on in to September.

Add to this the developing La Nina which kind of developed while no one was watching (not really just an expression) and you have the ingredients in place for a very busy second half of the season.

I address all of this and more in the first of several video discussions that I plan to post today:
