As we end July, the tropics look to remain quiet

Outside of Beryl and Chris, July has not delivered any major issues from the tropics – at least not in the form of any tropical storms or hurricanes. Dry, stable air over the tropical Atlantic has kept a lid on things and I do not see this changing anytime over the next several days.

In the east Pacific, this region too has been very quiet with no threats to Mexico at all during the entire month of July. Here too, I see no reason to think we will have any issues before the month is all said and done. However, a series of disturbances position well to the west of the Mexican coastline, far out in the east Pacific, shows signs of possible development but they will be moving away from land.

Once we get in to August, the tendency for the Atlantic to become active begins to increase quite a bit, especially as we move towards the latter half of the month. With things remaining nice and calm now, remember to use the time to get things done that can help you later: check your generator, make sure the family car is in good running order, etc. etc.

I cover these topics and more in my daily video discussion posted below.
