Tropics Beginning to Stir
Three potential active areas.
Here is a rundown on what is currently happening in the tropics as of Monday morning July 6, 2020:
Overnight, a weak tropical low moved from near Cape San Blas (FL) into southwest Georgia. While plenty of rain is likely for this region no tropical development is expected while over land. It is possible to see development once the aforementioned low tracks back over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream later this week. Impacts by that point would be the Carolina coastline.
In the north Atlantic, our fifth named storm of the season formed over the weekend. Eduardo, now a tropical storm is tracking NE over open waters and poses no immediate threat to land in the days to come.
Finally there’s a weak train of thunderstorms associated with the ITCZ (intertropical convergence zone) just east of the Lesser Antilles. While this area has frequently seen clusters of thunderstorms nothing has been able to develop so far but it is an area to watch in the days/weeks to come.
