Tropical Atlantic Update - low over Florida shows potential

low pressure over Florida showing potential for Gulf of Mexico development

Here we are almost two thirds of the way through the most historically active month in the tropical hurricane season, and things still remain relatively quiet in the Tropical Atlantic. There is something to keep our eye on, and that is a weak area of low pressure that is hanging along the Florida northeast coast. The national weather service has termed this area Investigation 93. This system has been contributing strong onshore winds and 3-5' surf along Northeastern Florida. The low is expected to move westward and redevelop into the Eastern Gulf, where tropical or subtropical development is possible.

Elsewhere in the Tropical Atlantic, there is an area of disturbed weather north of the leeward islands associated with the remnants of Tropical Storm Ingrid, but conditions are not currently favorable for redevelopment.

We will update the Swelinfo news section with any significant news regarding activity in the Tropics through the remainder of the season.
