Weekend Tropical Activity

September and early October are the peak times for tropical weather activity in the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico.

The most recent named storm is still active in the Atlantic. Ingrid is a tropical depression and is having trouble staying organized because of upper level winds. Those winds have been responsible for keep the storm from developing into a hurricane. Ingrid continues to drift to the northwest and is expected to weaken.

The circled area labeled #1 in the picture above has some potential for slow development and is being watched.

The area labeled #2 is associated with an upper level low and there is no apparent surface circulation at this time.
