August 10 and little going on in the Atlantic

August 10, 2018 4:50 PM ET

We are almost 1/3 of the way through August and so far, the tropical Atlantic looks generally quiet. While there is an area of interest embedded within the ITCZ, there is still too much in the way of negative factors in play for it to develop.

However….slowly but surely the Atlantic Basin is beginning to stir. It’s nothing like last year when we saw 10 hurricane form in a row, mainly due to a warmer than average swath of ocean water between Africa and Central America. We all know what happened and so far, it looks like we won’t see a repeat. That being said, we have no way of knowing whether or not an impactful storm or hurricane will make its way towards land areas before all is said and done in November – but it looks doubtful that we will see anything like 2017.

Check out my latest video discussion, posted below, for an in-depth look at current conditions and what we will be watching for in the coming days.
