Tropics Still Active…Somewhat

So far the 2009 Hurricane Season has fallen far short of outlooks for activity in the Atlantic and Caribbean. Only six named storms have developed so far with two depressions. Back in May the outlook was for 14 named storms.

The season is not over and forecasters are monitoring developments in the Atlantic. Two weather systems are being watched as indicated in the graphic below.


#1 is northeast of the Azores and was showing rapid development Sunday evening. It is near colder water and may be shortlived if it strengthens.

#2 is a large scale tropical wave that has shown signs of organized circulation. There is a small chance that this system could develop into a depression or tropical storm.

The Hurricane Season lasts through November.
