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.

Hey Brad, thanks for the update, and good to see you. Look forward to having you around this season.

Had some nasty storms here on the 11th huh? I am wondering if y'all may have gotten struck by lightning? Looks pretty close to the studio.

Again, great to have you around this season

interesting another big factor is the sal which has been heavy here in pr and expecting more tomorrow into wednesday. if the sal dies down then indeed expect an increase in activity if not then i think mostly the caribbean sea will be hot.
