Ironically this same time last year we had an area of interest in the same general area as we do today – out in the open tropical Atlantic. However, this season’s background conditions are markedly different than what we observed in 2017.
That being said, we do have a vigorous troplcanwave that has a good chance of developing in to a tropical depression at any time as it moves generally westward across the tropical Atlantic.
Check out my latest video discussion which goes in to more detail about the current and future outlook for this system.
