As a result of high speed upper level air currents associated with the Jet Stream branches, very little Tropical System development has taken place thus far this season in the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. As storms form in the Tropics and sub Tropics, the tops of these storms are sheared off by the upper level winds, preventing any major development. This trend will be continuing for the time being, but we will continue to monitor any areas that may have the potential for Tropical Storm development and report here in this area of the website.

Thank you for following our unofficial advisories and updates.
