Hurricane season is likely over yet again
A wintertime atmospheric pattern dominates the Atlantic, the Gulf of Mexico, and most of the Caribbean Sea. The jet stream has dipped far south over the U.S., which pushes cold fronts and dry air toward southern latitudes. No tropical systems can penetrate this type of weather pattern.
Subtropical Storm Adria has to form today or its window of opportunity will close
The non-tropical low-pressure system we’ve been following across the North Atlantic all week is likely down to its last day to get named. Either it quickly sheds its fronts – a legacy of its days as a coastal low off the Carolinas last weekend – or it gets absorbed by another big North Atlantic system that’s hot on its heels before it can get named.
Wandering Wanda to keep hurricane season going a couple more days
Tropical Storm Wanda is caught in an area of weak steering flow in the middle of the Atlantic. It’s drifting north and is forecast to drift back south again over the next couple of days before a strong enough dip in the jet stream comes along. That scoop should send it off into the North Atlantic.
