Watch the Atlantic Low for a Hurricane

Both of these Disturbances needs to be watched CLOSELY Especially 99L. Invest 99L WILL Develop and it will head west. Since this is a Cape Verde storm the MOST important Steering feature here is the Bermuda High (The High Pressure Near Bermuda over the Northern Atlantic). When the Bermuda High stays weak, it tends to recurve storms out to sea since its steering currents remain closer towards the center. HOWEVER, like in this case, when the Bermuda High Grows when a Tropical Storm or Hurricane nears, it tends to push storms closer into The US. This is where some of our most devastating storms have come from and it was the result of the Bermuda High Ridge Building, sending the storms into the Gulf of Mexico. Combine that with the Very hot upper 80 Degree temperatures of the Gulf and you can EASILY have a Major Hurricane.

One in the Atlantic that should go along the coast and out to sea.

 

That is if the jet stream bounces down a bit and takes her away from the coast.

 

Still early in the season but heading to the half-way point in September rapidly.

I hope not. We had that near miss/hit last year from Matthew and it was bad enough. The crazy thing was that my mom had passed away 2 days before the storm. Then The dang thing went up and hit the part of North Carolina she was from and we couldnt do the funeral right away because relatives couldnt get there from all the roads being washed out.I had one cousin that could not get out of her nieghborhood because of all the flooding.

This one is heading out into the Atlantic next week.

 

It could be a busy hurricane season in the Gulf and along our Atlantic coast.

 

In Virginia, when big storms are in the Atlantic off our coast, it messes up the tidal rivers and makes fishing difficult, along with boating if the winds pick up and create white caps. Yes, we get white caps on our rivers when the wind is strong.

 

Hopefully, the storms will stay away from our coast lines.

This is one of the worst times of year for us.

 

1) Dreaded dew points & humidity making an otherwise

lovely 83º feel like 100º.

2) Hurricanes, Tropical Storms/Depressions

Have two more in the Atlantic.

 

One is headed to Central America.

 

The second one is on course for Georgia/South Carolina unless it turns more to the north then it is North Carolina and Virginia.

 

Keep a watch on the second one.

I wouldn't mind a little extra rain in South Florida since that means the spillways will be open pumping extra water.The snook and bass fishing can be amazing when the water is coming out strong out these spillways. Besides me and my family lived thru Hurricane Andrew just fine,aint much I haven't seen in South Florida when it comes to hurricanes.
