Well here we are in the middle of July and so far only two named storms. In fact, nothing has happened in the Atlantic Basin since Tropical Storm Barry brought very beneficial rains to the southeast in early June. A parade of cold fronts over the past several weeks has suppressed tropical activity across the western Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico. However, a significant change to the overall weather pattern will be taking place next week. A large ridge of high pressure will take hold across the midsection of the United States. This in combination with the Bermuda High over the Atlantic will allow for a more favorable tropical weather pattern to take shape as we head into August. The big question is, will this pattern remain with us through August and September or will a trough re-establish itself across the eastern half of the U.S. Only time will tell, but do expect tropical activity to increase over the next few weeks.
