The Atlantic basin remains dormant with currently no organized tropical systems and no tropical development expected through at least the end of the week.

The tropical season still has several weeks left as it runs through the end of November, so more tropical activity is possible farther down the road. But for the time being, all is quiet in the Atlantic.

Over the eastern Pacific basin, a broad area of low pressure is expected to form in a few days a couple of hundred miles south of the coast of southern Mexico. Some gradual development of this system is possible thereafter as it moves west-northwestward off the coast of Mexico. It has a near zero chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a low (30 percent) chance during the next five days.

We are monitoring an undesignated tropical wave tracking to the west at 10 mph in the general direction of Trinidad and Tobago and northern South America. Although the path of this tropical wave is through light wind shear, model guidance runs the past 35 hours has considerably decreased the chance of cyclone development (tropical depression or tropical storm).

Tropical wave no. 39 is interacting with the stationary front over the Gulf of Mexico. Note tropical wave 40 over Central America and the Caribbean. It's approaching the peninsula. Tropical waves will continue to arrive in what remains of the week. Image from late Monday night.

On Ambergris Caye this morning the breeze is from the NE at 2 mph. We have been enjoying a week of calm sea around our barrier reef with a few light rain showers in the evenings. Today will be cooler with a predicted high temperature of only 86 f.
10 am-- I'm wrong a lot. It's raining buckets. But the morning was nice.

Those areas that missed the heavy night rain, look as if they will be getting it this morning, already starting in Stann Creak coastal areas and north Toledo. Getting to the central and northern areas later this morning. The rain forming cloud being the high level cloud from the SSW but being brought in by they easterly Caribbean.

Looks like rain this morning most, showers, some heavy rain, later mainly clouds, the odd sunshine occasionally.

No Tropical Development Is Expected Across The Atlantic, Caribbean Or Gulf Of Mexico The Rest Of This Week Into This Weekend; Is The Atlantic Hurricane Season Now Done?

Things remain quiet across the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico with no tropical development expected for the rest of this week and very probably this weekend.

I am at a loss and have been scratching my head trying to figure out why tropical development has not occurred, even though everything in the pattern, including a La Nina and an upward motion pulse of the MJO, should be favorable for a spurt of tropical development this month. Usually, during a La Nina year with a favorable MJO pulse would produce late season tropical systems and yet nothing is on the horizon Ė obviously, a great thing, but still perplexing.

This lack of tropical activity is not only just happening in the Atlantic, but itís also occurring in the eastern, central and western Pacific. For the Atlantic, it seems the reason for a lack of activity is a persistent trough of low pressure over the eastern US which seems to be imparting unfavorable conditions over the Caribbean. Fortunately, it just seems like things arenít clicking in place for development and my forecast for a busy October has obviously gone down in flames and this is something that Iím going to try to figure out what I missed and how I can do better next time.

So, now the question becomes are we done with the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season? To be perfectly honest, I donít know. On one hand, we should still probably see at least one or two more named storms given we are in a La Nina. On the other hand, a look at the conditions across the Atlantic Basin says it all Ė nothing is going to form anytime soon.

It should be noted that the model guidance are hinting that tropical activity may pick up right at the end of this month and the beginning of November. All 3 ensemble models (GFS ensemble, Canadian ensemble and European ensemble) point to the central and western Caribbean as a place to watch for tropical development at the very end of this month and the very beginning of November. Is this possible? Given we are in La Nina conditions Ė absolutely. Do I believe it yet? Nope, especially, given that the models seem to keep pushing back this forecast increase in activity. With that said, Iíll be monitoring the guidance and other data closely to see if we start to get some consistency in the possibility of development near the end of the month.

So, for now, things will be quiet and fortunately, I donít see any evidence that weíll see tropical development for at least the next 5 to 7 days and possibly longer than this.

And so it continues, mostly in the north right now, then more coming in first for the south.
