LOTS OF RAIN IN THE FORECAST FOR THE WEEKEND - This disturbance will continue to bring torrential rains primarily to portions of Central America and the Yucatan peninsula during the next few days.
First, that storm called TROPICAL STORM LESLIE circled in Orange, which was never in the Tropics, so should never have been called a Tropical Storm. It formed as a result of a fold in the Jet stream, and just kept going, intensifying at one time into hurricane strength cyclone. But now there has been another Jet stream action, which is stripping off cloud and air as circled in light blue. There is a small, intense hurricane HURRICANE SERGIO in the Pacific which will probably turn to the north and diminish over the next few days. Nothing coming off Africa at present.
But in the western Caribbean, there is a large area of ITCZ activity in what is often called the Monsoon Belt. This sort of activity has more recently been called a Central American Gyre, a large monsoon-type low pressure area, that can produce torrential rains at sea and onshore, and can sometimes develop into a cyclonic storm. I have circled the area in White, with the more intense area in Yellow, which we must watch.
" In meteorology, a cyclone is a large scale air mass that rotates around a strong center of low atmospheric pressure. Cyclones are characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate about a zone of low pressure. The largest low-pressure systems are polar vortices and extratropical cyclones of the largest scale.Wikipedia " note how a Cyclone could be anywhere and the largest are often near the north and south poles. So Leslie was really a north Atlantic cyclone and not a Tropical Storm.
