Atlantic Basin - Active Storms
AccuWeather Atlantic Basin Overview
Hurricane Summary POSTED: October 1, 2014 0:22 a.m. Atlantic Basin Devoid of Impending Tropical Development The rest of this week will be very similar to most of the hurricane season. Across the basin now, a significant amount of dry air and areas of high wind shear are limiting the potential for any development. Satellite imagery shows a few disturbances that are mainly disorganized showers and thunderstorms. The first feature is a rather compact area of low pressure spinning near Bermuda. This low brought rain to the East Coast of the U.S. last week and has since traveled on the outskirts of a high pressure ridge that is positioned between the East Coast and Bermuda. Water temperatures near Bermuda are in the lower 80s, but wind shear is rather high above the system indicating it is not purely a tropical system as can be expected from a system as far north as it is. This feature will head east-northeastward across the central North Atlantic then will merge with a cold front by the end of the week. Tropical development is not likely with this feature. Near the Gulf of Mexico, a stalled front is along the Gulf coast and along the Carolina coastline. No development is likely with this weak wave of low pressure on this front as it heads east-northeast along this front. Elsewhere throughout the basin, there is a weak tropical wave over the northern Caribbean, near Cuba, but this system is not expected to develop as it tracks west over the next couple of days.
