So the tropics remain active and we have our anticipated Caribbean wave now on the NOAA at 30%.
We have the spot we have been waiting for the past week. All that energy is pushing in and we have a wave at 30% in the Caribbean. This one has a good chance to build up for sure. Imagine we will see that percentage go up over the next few days. As for the path? Well, there is still lots at play, but most pull it up NNE towards the FL/Bahamas. As for how strong, well that is going to be a wait-and-see for now. Models do support something though, so keep an eye on this.
What? Wait?. There’s a next? Yup. We could yet another Caribbean Creeper build over the next 5-8 days. This one could also get blocked from pulling NE toward the Atlantic and push closer to the Gulf. Really need to keep an eye out for this potential spot as models are sniffing something downright stinky.
