The Caribbean Sea

There are two tropical waves moving across the basin. Overnight convection across the Greater Antilles has shifted westward and over the adjacent Caribbean waters of the islands early this morning. A surface trough extends from 22N86W to 16N88W. Scatterometer data depicts gentle to moderate trades across most of the basin, except west of 77W, where light to gentle winds are noted.

A surface trough moving across the Atlantic waters N of the Leeward Islands will increase winds and seas slightly over the Tropical N Atlantic waters N of 15N and E of 65W today. Fresh trade winds over the central Caribbean waters are expected to strengthen by midweek following the passage of a tropical wave.

Atlantic to continue to crank out tropical threats beyond Isaias

Tropical Storm Isaias is currently garnering the most attention as the storm eyes the United States east coast, with the threat of flooding and damaging winds. But, the Atlantic hurricane season is just getting started with the heart of the season more than a month away.

On Friday afternoon at 5 p.m. EDT, Tropical Depression 10 took shape about 200 miles off the west coast of Africa. However, the newly formed system had a brief life-span and succumbed to wind shear and dry air as the first weekend of August progressed.

There are two other potential areas for development, including one that has a better than 50/50 chance of becoming the next tropical depression and storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season.

"We are closely watching an area between Bermuda and the Bahamas," according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Rob Miller.

"A tropical disturbance will send some moisture northward into this region and a weak area of low pressure can form, followed by the potential for development of a tropical depression or storm by the middle of this week," Miller added.

There is another area east of Bermuda that bears watching as well. Although development potential is only on the order of 20% or so. This area would try to come about along a cold front and may transition to a tropical feature next week. This feature is not likely to affect any land areas, but could be a concern for mid-ocean shipping were it to develop.

Cloud all over the place, at several different heights, but none going in any particular direction except the high level coming in from the east.

Looks as if today will be very mixed, different types of cloud, some sunshine coming through some times, little or no rain.
