Thanks, I'm learning a lot from you Levi.
I've been watching the following with interest:
(I snipped this quote from Dr. Master's blog and moved Levi's image to the body of my post).
Quoting 2130. Levi32:
All focus is on the trough in the Bahamas associated with ex-Chantal, but there is a 2nd piece to the south in the form of a sharp wave axis with no thunderstorms on it, continuing the journey westward.

I think this should be watched as it nears the Yucatan and then west of the Yucatan in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. It's being sheared in a suppressive upper flow right now, but will be moving under a ridge aloft near the Yucatan, and the upper low splitting off over the SE US will be retrograding away from it in the western gulf in 3-4 days. Such a pattern could lead to thunderstorm growth in the area, and throwing a sharp wave axis like this in the mix can get interesting. It's also the leading edge of the resurgence of the Caribbean low-level jet in the wake of Chantal, meaning there's going to be a lot of air piling into the western Caribbean and SW gulf in the coming days. Air piling up usually rises.br

Thanks for the update Levi. I don't expect much more than a rain maker for ex-Chantal.
