It’s quiet… for now.
The MJO (Madden–Julian Oscillation) shows a lot of moisture coming into the Gulf and Caribbean late this week into next week. This could be a “hot spot” for development.
Typically, this is not a common area for development in the month of August, but worth watching since passing fronts can drop off bits of energy that could strengthen, as we saw last month in the Gulf with Barry.
