Two Disturbances in the Atlantic

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Monday, October 15, 2018

There are two disturbances in the Atlantic right now.

The first is a low-latitude tropical wave located several hundred miles east of French Guiana. Showers and thunderstorms have decreased and become less organized. Development is not anticipated.

Secondly is a broad area of low pressure over the southwestern Caribbean Sea. That low is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Some gradual development is possible before it moves inland over Central America Monday night or Tuesday.

So far this year there have been 14 named storms. The next storm will be named Oscar.
