September is the worst month of the H-season. We have been very thankful for how nice this summer has been and we hope it only continues to improve.

Today we have a tropical wave passing through, but it's not too bad. There's two other waves out there in the Atlantic right now:
  • along 39w S of 18n with a 1009 mb low along the wave near 11n moving W near 10 kt
  • along 20w/21w S of 17n moving W 15 to 20 kt.
We have had quite a bit of atmospheric dust which, while it doesn't make for pretty skies, it does put a damper on these tropical systems.

Once again, here is the statistical graph:

Here's hoping for a safe and sane season...
