Green Patches with Lines and a few Numbers

I mentioned the seemingly slow-going tropical season so far and now it looks to being showing some flame. Tropical Storm Greg continues to weaken after achieving hurricane status Thursday in the Eastern Pacific.

The Atlantic is starting to spin up as well with Tropical Storm Harvey just west of the Yucatan Peninsula. More intriguing is a storm that has been shown on models for days now. As of this morning the disturbance is east of the Lesser Antilles, but from the NHC, has a 80% chance it becoming a named storm within 48 hours.

Looking at the GFS model, this may indeed become the first hurricane of the year in the Atlantic. The track has also been looking to take a slide up the eastern US, so will have to watch this event closely.

Strong system hitting the east coast of Florida Friday.

Temperatures in our neck of the woods will take a little dip into the mid 70s later this weekend and early next week. Hopefully this will give another break before temps climb back into the 80s soon enough.
