August is the start of MDR season, and we could start to see some action this week.
Currently we don’t have anything showing on the NOAA site, but there is a lot of energy pushing off the African coast today, so I assume this could change.
So what’s on the horizon?
- We have some big systems rolling off the African coast today.
- These storms have the potential to regroup and develop over the next few days.
- Some models show decent strengthening through the week and a push westward.
- Need to monitor closely
- We also could see another set of storms roll off Africa later this week.
- These could also have the potential to develop and push westward.
- More to come
So by this weekend, we could have at least two areas to watch over the next week or so.
