Get ready for busier Tropics

The Atlantic hurricane season has been a “no-show” so far this year, but get ready for an increase in activity over the next couple of weeks,  if my crystal ball is correct.

While the predictions for the season have been downgraded recently, it still could turn quite active over the Tropical Atlantic from mid-August through early September.  That is, after all, typically the most active part of hurricane season anyway, so this would be no surprise.

Sea surface temperatures have warmed considerably over the past couple of weeks, which should provide the breeding ground for some development.   My guess is that we see our first named storm in a week or so.  We’ll see.

    I certainly dont want any tropical storms or hurricanes bringing any wind or ran around here. So lets not talk about that. I dont want anything disturbing the heat wave, except for perhaps, bad air qualities and even more extreme heat. I want it to become hotter and drier than it has ever been before. I love it when it is cooking hot

    Thanks for the heads up. I’m off to the store to load up on plywood and Pop Tarts.
