So we have reached that time of the year where the US coastline from Texast to Maine watches as waves come off of Africa one after the other,some die quickly,some make it half way across,but wind shear and lack of support defeats any attempt to organize,some even make it to Tropical storm status and get named,but either turn out to sea,or just fall apart,but most years there are at least two or three which make it across the Atlantic strenghtening as it moves across threatening first the carribean islands and then the US.
Currently we have Ernesto which made landfall on the Yucatan Penn. last night and dropped to TS status and is getting ready to reemerge off the Yucatan,but he has moved more SW,so may not have much chance to strenghten before making second landfall. Florence is no longer a system,but the wave is still there so we should keep an eye on it as it moves through the carribean, we also have 92L which is very disorganized with lots of dry air around it and doesn't seem to have much future.The real story may be the very strong wave getting set to emerge from the African coast which models are indicating may become a major storm and if the pattern holds,could be a threat from Florida to Maine,with the SE coast the major threat at this point.It is way way to early to speculate,but this will be something to watch going into next week.
