Monday Weekly Weather Summary: Quiet Week Ahead, Eyeing Tropical Systems

Good morning everyone. Going to be very brief today as it will be a very busy day at work (market). An upper level ridge of high pressure is just offshore today which will keep things more on the humid side with temps in the mid to upper 80's. As we head into tonight/tomorrow morning a weak cold front will approach from the west..

Expect a few showers but nothing to really write home about. In the wake of the front things cool down again in the low to mid 80's with very low humidity for the rest of the week. You can see below the overall jet stream pattern for this week..

Anytime the jet stream dips over us we get cooler and at times unsettled weather. In this case I am not expecting much unsettled weather outside of tonight and tomorrow morning. 

Moving on briefly we actually do have a tropical storm in the Caribbean. Its name is Danny and has been the talk of the weather community over the past few days..

Here is the satellite image..

There has been a lot of debate on where this goes  and if it strengthens, but here are current model projections..

I will keep you guys updated if this situation gets more interesting. Also, there will be another tropical system developing in the longer range that we will need to track. You can see the storm on the euro out in the Atlantic about a week from today..

Stay tuned!

  1. Willy, I'm not holding my breath on either Danny or 98L (the one that the Euro sees for next week). Lots of shear and Saharan air down there, supposedly. If Danny does somehow march on, it might be towards the Gulf. And I've read on other blogs that the Euro puts the 98L out with the mid-Atlantic fish by 240 hours. No strange high-level trough arrangements to suck it towards the East Coast, like back in October 2012. Still, much can happen over a week, and Cape Verde does seem to be blowing out a lot of waves lately. Never know if one will get lucky. So thanks for keeping us posted on this. Jim G
