Will devote this hurricane season to provide up-to-the-minute, basic information when a tropical system is threatening land. Both basins included.

Tropical Storm Nadine is weakening as it heads in a course for a likely brush with the Azores Islands by Wednesday/Thursday--a tropical storm watch is in effect for those islands so western portions of the Azores should just basically prepare for a wet and fairly windy latter half of the week, not much more. After affecting the Azores Islands, Nadine should lose tropical characteristics by the time the weekend nears and not harm any other land masses.
The Atlantic AOI I discussed yesterday is slowly organizing as it enters an area relatively favorable for development. A TD/TS forming from this seems like a strong possibility sometime this week, maybe in the short term, and the NHC gives this a decent 40% chance of TC formation by Wednesday afternoon. If models verify--there should be no threat to either Bermuda, Caribbean or the US though coastal western Europe may eventually feel impacts from the extratropical remnants. Of course it's just an Invest--we'll get a better picture when a TD/TS forms if it does.
Comments will take a few seconds to appear.
